Tex-Mex Pinto Bean Burgers

For some reason this recipe has taken a long time for me to post.  The first time I made it was last fall and we fell in love with them from first bite. I have made them several times since then. This recipe is adapted from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice.

1 (15 oz) can pinto beans (rinsed and drained)
1/2 cup corn
1/3 cup fresh tomato (diced)
1/4 cup red onion (diced)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
fresh black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp chile powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/3 cup bread crumbs or ground oatmeal
2 tbsp olive oil


Place the pinto beans in a mixing bowl and mash several times with a potato masher. Add in the remaining ingredients (except olive oil) and stir.  Form patties and set to the side.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Brown the burgers on each side for several minutes and until cooked through. Top with cheese and remove from skillet. Dress up your burger however you desire and serve.
