So I ended up doing quesadillas with pinto beans, guacamole and veggies. But I'm so making this recipe soon, thanks! And thanks to all for giving me ideas

2 (15.5 oz each) cans pinto beans, drained, LIQUID RESERVED
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup olive oil (I'm pretty sure I didn't use THAT much)
Your favorite burger toppings
6 Whole wheat buns
Fork-mash 1 can of the pinto beans. In a medium bowl, mix mashed beans, whole beans, breadcrumbs, eggs, pepper and garlic. Add enough bean liquid to hold the mixture together and be moist, without being wet. Divide into 6 equal portions and flatten into 4-inch patties.
Warm buns in a 300-degree oven, about 5 minutes. Heat oil in a large (12") skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook, turning only once, until a crisp brown crust forms on both sides, 6-8 minutes total. Serve on buns with your favorite burger toppings.
These go great with pepper-jack or smoked gouda cheese on top, and with BBQ sauce. Yum....
