Black Bean Burgers (Spicy!)

oh my goodness these black been burgers are wonderful and soooooooooooooooooooooooo EASY to make! 

Make Em' and Feel Good Eatin' Them! 
Oh but be careful, they come with spicy edge!
Adapted from

1 can black beans, no sodium added.
3 cherry tomatoes
2 tbs spicy/chunky salsa 
(should have some spicy pepper, onion, etc.)
1 tbs sriracha
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tbs ground flaxseed + 3tbs water
1 tbs cumin
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
½ cup old fashioned oats

Mix flaxseed and water and set aside to gummy-fy while making rest of mix 

Rinse and pat dry black beans. Smash with a fork in a bowl. 

In either a food processor or single cup blender, blend garlic cloves, tomatoes, salsa, and sriracha. 
Then add cumin, salt, pepper, flaxseed mix, and oats. Quick blend. Mixture should be chunky.
Add blender mix to smashed black beans and combine with a spatula.
Equally pat out 4 patties and place on a plate covered with wax paper. (this took a bit of back and forth hand toss to make it flat)
Freeze for at least 2 hours or until ready to cook.
 (Freezing helps with the cooking! Nothing is as bad as a gooey patty)
*I just froze them as shown in picture. I encourage you to add another piece of wax paper on top and press lightly to make them flat on both sides.
Cook Frozen patties on lightly oiled pan for  5-7 min each side.
