Spicy Black Bean Burgers

This afternoon I did some food prep for the week. I made some delicious black bean burgers with the perfect amount of kick! I've been switching more to a vegan and vegetarian lifestyle for digestive reasons (intolerance) and have been finding new ways to still get in my protein. These burgers are spot on! They're perfect on a salad, as a lettuce wrap, and on a bun! You will love these burgers at your next bbq!
