  • 3/4 cup diced red bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 3 large cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons bacon chipotle sauce (recommended: Bob's Bacon Chipotle Sauce)
  • Tortilla Chip Breading:

Directions

Coat pan with 2 teaspoons peanut oil.

Combine beans, salsa, green onions, peppers, cilantro, bread crumbs, garlic, and chipotle sauce in a large bowl and mix well, mashing up the beans. Form 12 small patties (about the diameter of a silver dollar and 3/4 to 1-inch thick) and roll in tortilla breading.

Heat 2 teaspoons peanut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties, in batches as necessary, until golden brown and heated through.

Serve on bed of salsa or cover with salsa and fresh cilantro. Add a small dollop of Peppered Lime Mayonnaise on top and garnish with a twist on lime.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate if not using immediately.
