Chipotle Pepper Spiced Black Bean Burger

Chipotle peppers are a favorite ingredient in my kitchen. I absolutely love the smokey and spicy flavor of the peppers and believe they can bring just about any dish more life. Last night while I was riding my bike on the trainer I started thinking about what to have for dinner and my original thought was to have a TLT (Tempeh, Lettuce, Tomato) sandwich but when I opened the refrigerator it was like when Jules opened the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. The black beans shined like gold and then my mind started running.

What goes good with black beans? Onions? Yes. Avocado? Yes. Chipotle Peppers? HELL YES!!!! And what is a burger/patty dish without fries.....grab that sweet potato before my wife does.

At that point dinner was just a matter of time and having just finished an hour on the bike I did not have time before I wanted to start eating my arm.

Since my inspiration came along late last night I did not have time for the patty to setup and so it fell apart but nothing a spoon couldn't handle. The recipe below will give you the setup time so that the patty does not break apart when you cut or bite into it.
