Dice- red pepper, green onion, jalapeno and place in a mixing bowlChop spinach (if fresh), frost 1 1/2 cups if frozen pressing all the water out - place in mixing bowl with above.Add corn to bowl
Mix in cumin, chili pepper, parsley, salt and cayenne into mixing bowl and coat vegetables
Add ingredients in bowl to a large skillet with olive oil and cook (mixing frequently) until red pepper is soft.
While you are cooking the vegetables on the stove, prepare the black bean mixture.
In a mixing bowl add, black beans, bread crumbs, egg, cumin and coriander. Using a fork mash and blend ingredients together. (Chunks of black beans are okay as long as mixture is well blended)
Once vegetables and spices are cooked down and blended well together transfer to the black bean mixture and stir in well.
Using your hands, or a spoon remove a palm sized ball of mixture and form into a patty (much like you would a beef burger), keep in mind black beans do not shrink the way beef does so you want to size accordingly to the size of your buns.
Heat your pan on med heat with a little oil, once the pan is nice and hot place your black bean patties on, brown one side so it has a nice crispy crust (3-5 min) and flip to the other side and brown.
Once both sides are cooked turn heat to low and place pieces of cheese (if you do not like pepper jack you can use any cheese you like; I like using pepper jack because it gives the burgers a nice spice). Place a top of your pan over the burgers, this melts the cheese faster without burning the bottoms of the patties.
When the cheese is melted you are ready to plate! Place patty on bun and top with sauce (instructions below) and lettuce. ENJOY!
