Spicy Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burger with Avocado Cream Sauce recipe will satisfy even the most ardent meat eater! These burgers taste divine!

I’ll be honest, I’ve been wanting to make Spicy Homemade black Bean Veggie Burger with Avocado Cream Sauce for a long time. I’ve eaten store-bought black bean burgers and love them. For some reason, I had a mental block to making black bean burgers myself. It just seemed complicated.

After making Slow Cooker Black Beans and having so many black beans left over, I got seriously about researching a black bean burger recipe. It turns out that they are really easy to make and don’t take much time at all. Actually, the food processor does most of the work.

  1. The black beans are easier to mash with a fork if they are warm or hot.
  2. I do recommend mashing them with a fork versus mixing them entirely in the food processor. The burgers will have more texture if they are not pureed in the food processor.
  3. I added chili powder and cumin to flavor my burgers since my black beans already Mexican flavors in them. You can experiment with different spices.

I love a spicy burger and, in my opinion, the more spicy flavor you add to black bean burgers the better! I like to top burger with Avocado Cream Sauce or with Sriracha Comeback Sauce, Lulu’s Wow Sauce, or Lighter Sriracha Dippins Sauce. It adds a nice heat in contrast with the black bean burger.

The Avocado Cream Sauce is optional, however, I highly recommend it! It goes perfectly with the Mexican seasoned black bean burgers. I also like this sauce on sandwiches, as a dip for roasted vegetables and on black bean or chicken soft tacos. It’s very versatile and really easy to make.

  1. Looks like a good recipe for veggie burger, but I guess I’ll have to look elsewhere for the avocado cream sauce.
