Black Bean Sliders with Charred Poblanos & Spicy Mango Sauce

Tender black bean burgers, charred poblano peppers and smooth, spicy mango sauce sandwiched between slider buns. Perfect for parties and barbecues!

Black Bean Sliders
makes 6 sliders
1-15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
3 tbl chopped, fresh cilantro
1 tbl creole seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 tbl coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
6 slider buns, toasted

Combine the black beans, garlic, zucchini, red onion, cornmeal, panko, cilantro, creole seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl. Use your hands to squish the mixture together and break up the beans. Stop squishing once the mixture can hold shape. Make sure to keep some texture and do not over mix.
Form into 6 patties and chill for 30 minutes.
When ready to eat, saute in coconut oil until golden brown and cooked through, 10 minutes total.
Serve with charred poblanos and spicy mango sauce.

Spicy Mango Sauce
1 mango, small dice
1 tbl organic light brown sugar
2 tsp tamari
1 tsp red chili paste (such as Sambal)
1 tsp lime juice

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Chill until ready to serve.

Charred Poblanos
2 tbl canola oil
1 poblano pepper, thin strips
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt

In a cast iron pan or saute pan, add the oil and heat until it starts to lightly smoke. Add the poblanos and season with cumin and salt. Cook over high heat until the peppers have softened and have lightly charred, stirring often.
