Ingredients

Chipotle Sour Cream:

4 ounces sour cream

1 teaspoon adobo

Squeeze lime juice

Black Beans:

2 cups dried black beans

1 onion, chopped

5 garlic cloves

Sauteed Vegetables:

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 red onion, diced

6 to 8 garlic cloves, chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Black Bean Patties:

1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon adobo

Olive oil

1/4 cup julienned red onion

1/4 cup diced tomatoes

Squeeze lime juice

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. For the sour cream: Mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
  3. For the black beans: Combine the black beans with the onion and garlic cloves. Cover with water and bring to a boil, and then simmer, covered. The beans are ready when they are tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and set aside to cool down. Drain.
  4. For the vegetables: Saute all ingredients in a medium saute pan in the oil over medium-high and set aside to cool down.
  5. For the patties: Take about 3/4 cup black beans after they have cooled and put into food processor and pulse until the beans break apart but don't form a big ball of mush.
  6. Add the beans to the sauteed vegetables and mix in the flour, cumin, salt and pepper, and adobo and form into 6 to 8 patties.
  7. Add enough oil to coat a medium saute pan and place over medium-high heat. Add 2 to 3 patties and cook for about 1 minute, and then turn and sear the other sides for 1 more minute. The patties should have a golden brown crust. Place into the oven for about 4 minutes.
  8. While the patties are in the oven, add enough oil to coat a medium saute pan and place over medium-high heat. Add the red onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach, season with salt and pepper, and wilt. Add the diced tomatoes and toss to warm through.
  9. Set the spinach in the center of a plate and place 2 to 3 bean cakes on top. Squeeze a little lime juice on top and top off with chipotle sour cream.
