Black Bean and Rice Burgers

A friend of mine shared this recipe with me-her family loves them. Wow! They are really good! They're super easy to whip up and only take minutes to cook also. Not to mention, they've got to be incredibly healthy! Being the wimpy family we are with spice, I used mild salsa. Top with the cheese of your choice, ketchup or salsa on the side. I think a little lime and fresh cilantro would be great in these!

1 can (15 ounce) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons salsa

optional dressing on the side:
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup sour cream
simply combine salsa and sour cream
to serve on the side

In a large bowl, mash beans with a fork. Add the rice, onion, egg and 2 tablespoons salsa; mix well. Drop by a 1/2 cup measuring cup onto a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until firm and browned. (Flip them carefully-they break more easily since they don't have all the fat from a beef burger.) Serve with lettuce, sour cream and salsa, if desired. 4 servings
