Spicy Mexican Bean Burger
(yield: 8 - 10 burgers)

16 ounce can red kidney beans, drained and mashed
1/2 cup small onion, coarsley chopped
1/2 green pepper, coarsley chopped
1 carrot, steamed and mashed
1/8 cup picante sauce or salsa (spicy or mild to your taste)
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
dash of chili powder

Mix all ingredients together. Add more flour to create a firmer
mixture, or more salsa if mixture is too stiff. Form into balls
and smash into patties. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes,
until firm, brown and done. Serve on a whole wheat bun with lettuce,
tomato and salsa. Accompany with tortilla chips and a large glass
of iced tea. These can be grilled or pressed in those new-fangled
sandwich presses... a lot quicker and tastier than baking.

We cut back black pepper to 1/2 tsp. Although unspecified, we used
whole wheat flour. We made these a second time, adding 1/2 tsp.
of salt. Many of us preferred them this way.
