1–2 large cloves garlic, minced

1 egg

1 1/2 tsp. chili powder or more depending on your taste

2 tsp. cumin or more depending on your taste

1/2 cup bread crumbs or you could substitute oats, cooked rice, or quinoa

1–2 Tbsp. mild salsa

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly oil a baking sheet.

Mash drained black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.

Finely chop onions, garlic and green pepper or put in food processor, and add to mashed beans.
