Preparation

  1. Place jalapeno, red onion, and garlic in a small skillet with 1 tablespoon oil. Cook until the onion begins to turn translucent (about 5 minutes) just to take the edge off of the flavors.
  2. Dump all patty ingredients into a food processor and pulse until mostly smooth. Having some whole beans is totally fine!
  3. Place mixture in a bowl and let set in fridge for about 15 minutes (can prep slaw during this time)
  4. After the mixture has set, divide into 4 patties and place in a lightly greased skillet to sear each side.
  5. Make the dressing: mix the mayo, chipotle adobo sauce, spices, lime, and salt and pepper in a bowl. You can add a tablespoon of water if you want to dilute. Mix well and set aside
  6. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, red pepper, onion, corn, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro. Top with dressing and mix well! Adjust seasoning as needed.
