Making your own veggie burger is not as hard as you think. For this Jalapeno Red Bean Burger, you just have to let the blender/food processor do most of the work! There are easy step-by-step directions (with pictures!). If you are wondering about that sauce on top, it’s my Burger Sauce! Check out the recipe. It’s not hard, I promise. 🙂
