Chipotle Black Bean and Corn Double Stacks
Creamy black beans bring flavour and body to this playful plant-powered burger! A dose of BBQ sauce and chipotle spices lend the burgers a smoky heat, tucked into crusty ciabatta buns. Fiesta-ready sweet potato ‘nachos’ are served alongside, smattered with a sweet corn and jalapeno toppers.
- 1 can Black Beans
- 2 Ciabatta Buns
- 1/2 oz Rolled Oats
- 1 ear Sweet Corn
- 2 Sweet Potato
- 1 Jalapeno Pepper
- 1 Tomato
- 1 Lime
- 2 oz Sour Cream
- 2 oz Smoky BBQ Sauce
- Southwest Spice Mix
- Garlic Powder
- Chipotle Chili Powder
- Prepare Ingredients – preheat oven to 475, wash and dry veggies, halve lime, slice sweet potatoes, cut 2 slices from tomato & small dice rest, husk and shave corn, small dice jalapeño
- Sweet Potatoes – in large bowl add sweet potatoes, 2 tsp oil, season with salt, toss to combine, arrange on baking sheet in even layer, bake in over for 8 minutes
- Mix Black Beans – drain and rinse beans, in large bowl mash black beans with potatoes masher, add rolled oats, 1/2 of corn, 3/4 BBQ sauce, 3/4 spice mix, season with salt and pepper and mix well to combine
- Bake – with damp hands form bean mixture into 4 equal sized burgers and arrange on sheet with potatoes, move to oven, bake for 12-15 minutes, until potatoes and burgers are crisp on the outside
- Mix Salsa & Chipotle Sour Cream – in medium bowl add jalapeño, diced tomato, remaining corn and juice from 1/2 lime, mix to combine, in small bowl mix sour cream, remaining lime juice, remaining spice mix
- Toast Ciabatta Buns & Serve – add ciabatta buns directly onto oven rack and toast for 2-4 minutes, plate sweet potatoes with corn salsa and chipotle sour cream, serve black bean burgers on toasted buns with sliced tomato, chipotle sour cream and remaining BBQ sauce
Notes: The black bean burgers had really nice flavour but were a little too soft, I would bake them longer next time, they also fell apart quite easily which made for a messy meal. I sliced my potatoes too thin so they didn’t provide a good base for the salsa. Other than that the meal was very tasty.
