Black Bean & Walnut Burgers

 30 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained
 2 tsp ground cumin
 3 tsp chili powder
 cayenne pepper
 ½ cup cooked brown rice
 ½ cup chopped walnuts
  cup red onion, chopped
 3 tbsp canned corn, drained
  cup cornmeal
 guacamole for garnish
 chunky salsa for garnish

Puree 2 1/2 cups beans with cumin, chili powder and cayene pepper until smooth. Add rice, walnuts, onion, corn and remaining beans; pulse 2 or 3 times to mix (mixture should be stiff but not dry). Add 2 or 3 tablespoons water to moisten, if necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and chill if making ahead.


Divide mixture into 8 burgers. Dredge burgers in cornmeal. Chill 30 minutes (unless mixture has been made earlier and chilled).


Coat nonstick pan or grill with cooking spray. Cook burgers over medium heat 4 minutes. Flip, and cook 4 minutes more or until heated through. Garnish with guacamole and salsa, if desired, and serve.
