Bean and Sweet Potato Patties with Lime-Jalapeno Cream
Because canned beans can be mushy, pair them with crunchy ingredients. Our sweet potato, quinoa and pinto bean patties had plenty of smoky, garlicky flavor. But when we added walnuts and served them over crisp romaine, they soared.
*Handling Hot Peppers
Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapeños, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
To store leftovers:
Wrap individual patties in foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Reheat, unwrapped, in a skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes per side or until heated through (165°F).
