I came up with Zesty Chipotle Black Bean Cakes as a healthy appetizer for all of you to try. If you’re thinking, “Meghan, will everyone like this?” I’d answer, “Yes! Of course!!” All of my healthy recipes are graded very carefully by my best critic, My Husband. This is how our taste session went last evening…
Me: So what do you think?
Jim: It’s really good.
Me: It’s not girly good, right?? Like, boys would eat it?
Jim: Yeah, it’s spicy and smoky. Doesn’t taste super healthy. I like it.
Me: Sooo, would you say you like it like it?
Jim: (growing annoyed with me) I’d never say “like it like it” to anything but it’s very good and I’d eat it again.
So there you have it. . My hubby hit it right on the head. Zesty Chipotle Black Bean Cakes are spicy & smokey. Lime juice and cilantro gives the cake some fresh zest. And topping each cake with guacamole & tomatoes not only looks great, but it adds a creamy texture.
These zesty cakes can be prepared a day of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Form the cakes the day of and bake. Top with gauc when the party starts.
