The first time I made bean burgers was when I was teaching myself to cook. They were HORRIBLE, even my mom's dog would not eat them. So this recipe made me a tad nervous, but it turned out great! Because I seeded the jalapeno, there was no heat to the guac, and it was a nice touch on the burger. Try this!
