Reviews for Salsa Black Bean Burgers
"Delicious. I love how quickly they come together. I skipped the jalapeno and cilantro while adding salsa instead of a tomato. Served them with some red onion on top and sweet potato fries on the side. Just wish I'd had some guacamole!!"
"I've never eaten meatless burgers before - let alone make them! But these were hands down the tastiest and easiest burgers that I've ever made! I cannot wait to make these again!"
