With fresh scallions, cilantro, and spicy pepper Jack cheese, these zingy burgers are a far tastier option than veggie burgers from the freezer case. Rolled oats help hold them together. Avocado and jarred salsa go with the southwestern theme, but lettuce, tomato, and ketchup are also good toppings.

To my surprise, everyone liked this - including a fussy child who had begged for a "real" hamburger. We put guacamole and fresh salsa on top and there were no leftovers. The teenagers asked me to make more and put them in the freezer so they can heat them up after school. Will definitely make again, very easy too.
This is my favorite "quick" black bean burger. It is always requested in the summer time when we tend to do alot of BBQ'd meat and so it is a change from that. I do cook these on the BBQ, just because we still like the smoky flavor.
Have to agree with others...these are really good. I used smoked pepper jack which added to the overall flavor. Will definitely make these again!
