Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans 15 ounce can, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup Mexi-corn drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon Sabra Hummus
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro you could use parsley instead!
  • 1/2 ounce fajita seasoning half of a packet
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 slices pepper jack cheese cut in fourths
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1 green pepper sliced
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 8 slider buns
  • 1/2 cup Sabra Guacamole

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • In a food processor or blender, place the beans, corn, hummus, cilantro, fajita seasoning, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper. Pulse approximately 15-20 times or until a chunky paste forms. It's okay if there are still some bean and corn pieces, it shouldn't be fully smooth. Pour paste into a large bowl,
  • In a separate small bowl, lightly whisk the two eggs. Pour the eggs into the bean paste and stir to fully combine. Add in the bread crumbs, adding a bit more if need be. The consistency should be plyable and thick.
  • Make 8 small patties out of the bean mixture and place on a foil lined baking sheet. The beans won't change shape in the oven, so make the patties the shape you would like them to be when finished.
  • Cook the patties for 20 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. (see note if you would rather grill!)
  • While patties are cooking, prepare you fajita veggies. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add your peppers and onion slices with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are slightly charred and soft. You don't want to saute them completely, you want to keep a bit of crunch. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside.
  • When there are two minutes left on the burgers, Add a 1/4 of a slice of cheese to the top of each burger, letting the cheese melt in the oven.
  • To assemble your Hummus Fajita Black Bean Burger Sliders, spread a generous amount of guacamole on the bottom half of each slider roll. Top with a Black Bean burger, then top with a spoonful of the fajita veggies. Add the top half of the bun and enjoy!

Notes

If grilling, brush both sides of the patties with olive oil and grill over medium high heat for 4-6 minutes each, or until browned and cooked through. Place cheese on during the last 30 seconds on the grill.
