Mini Salsa Bean Burgers

I made these salsa bean burgers the first time when I was cooking supper and realised that I was cooking a meat dish and had forgotten to make something for me to eat.

They were made on the fly and are not my usual bean burger recipe as I used what I could grab from the fridge.  Since then they have been slightly refined, but are still a throw together recipe, whatever is in the fridge goes into them.

And I love to eat them with a dollop of ketchup.

Sauté the onion and pepper until soft.

Combine all the ingredients and form into mini patties.

Cook burgers until browned on one side and then carefully turn to brown on other, finish in the oven if needed.
