Cheddar and Pinto Bean Patties

Adapted from Vegetarian Times

2 ½ cups dried breadcrumbs, divided
1 15oz can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup canned chopped green chiles
2 Tbs olive oil
Sour cream (optional)

Mash pinto beans with a fork or potato masher in a mixing bowl. Add cheese, chiles, and half of the breadcrumbs. Mix everything together and form mixture into 4 patties. Dredge the patties in the remaining breadcrumbs.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties until crisp and golden brown, roughly 3-5 minutes on each side. Serve with sour cream, if you so desire. Leave the dishes for tomorrow and get some rest…
