If you had asked me if I liked Black Beans three months ago..I would have gagged at the sound of it..and then said “Ewwww beanss…grosss” Drew on the other hand has always LOVED them. Since I refused to every cook anything with them..he was left on his own. He would cook up a can of black beans..pour them in a bowl, and top them with salsa, sour cream, and brown rice. (Sorta like a burrito…minus all the delicious goodies!) Ew.

Anyhoo…a few months ago he finally convinced me to give black beans another try. hmph. So I made Black Bean Soup in a bread bowl. (Everything is better with carbs :P) Turns out, I LOVE black beans..that soup was probably one of the best I ever had. For Reals. So when I saw these Black Bean Burgers, knowing Drew loves black beans and I apparently  have a new found like for them…I had to give them a shot. Oh meh goodness. SO GREAT! I hardly noticed it was meatless! It was nice and crispy on the outside, moist and extremely flavorful on the inside! It was SO filling, I couldn’t even finish it! You want these. Make them!
