  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs*
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans low sodium, rinsed & drained
  • 2 tablespoon chipotle sauce or 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 egg


  • Guacamole or avocado
  • 2 roma tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 lime juice


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil covered in cooking spray.
  • In large bowl, add 1 cup of panko bread crumbs. Set aside.
  • Add cilantro, garlic, green onions, red pepper, black beans, chipotle sauce and juice from 1/2 of a lime to your blender jar.
  • For Blendtec: Press the DIPS button.
  • For Vitamix: Start on Variable Speed 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable Speed 5 or 6. Blend for 20 seconds, keeping it chunky. Careful not to over blend.
  • Add bean mixture to the panko. Add in egg and mix thoroughly with your hands. You will not want extra liquid, so add extra panko, if needed.
  • Make medium sized cakes, about 1/4 cup each, and place on baking sheet.
  • Spray the top of cakes with cooking spray so that they will brown in the oven.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, flip the cakes and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Top cakes with guacamole or avocado, tomatoes and a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Serve warm.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes
