Black Bean Burgers and Avocado Sauce

So, I'm keeping with my quest to cook one new thing per week. I hope I'll be able to keep it up, I think it's good to spice things up a bit. This weeks effort was Black Bean Burgers with Avocado Sauce and Mexican Oven Fries. I was inspired by Erin here, but then realized I apparently made the more complicated recipe. Opps. Oh well. My recipe turned out ok. Some things good, some things not so good. The burgers themselves were easier then I thought, though took a little longer then I'd hoped they would.

One thing, if you make these, eliminate the pumpkin seeds, or make extra sure you get unsalted ones. Mine were salted and it made the burgers WAY too salty. Shoot. However, the avocado sauce was awesome, I will definitely make these again. I think I'd also make the burgers again, just without the pumpkin seeds. Also, the fries were fabulous. And super easy. But a word to the wise, use tin foil in your pan. We didn't have any, and I thought that would be fine. Our pan had to soak for a few days afterwards to get off the potato stuff. Shoot.

Sizzling pumpkin seeds. 

Steaming black beans... 

The finished product!
