Chipotle Cheese Stuffed Black Bean Burgers with Avocado Creme
Today, in honor of Meatless Monday, I wanted to share my Black Bean Burgers with y'all! This is a recipe I have made over and over again for my family. Sometimes I make sliders, other times full size burgers. Sometimes I top with cheese, other times with crunchy veggies. But I always serve my Black Bean Burgers stuffed with cream cheese and topped with Avocado Creme! Once you try this recipe you will get requests from your family for it all the time (trust me!). Even better- it's meatless and good for ya! Serve with homemade sweet potato fries and corn on the cob for a flavor packed, finger-lickin' good dinner!
