COOK TIME
20 Min

Who knew that egg whites, black beans and salsa would go together so well? Fry up a batch of our Cowboy Bean Fritters and round up the gang -- it's feeding time!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil, plus extra if needed
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add egg whites and salsa; mix well, then stir in black beans.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Pour 1 teaspoon batter per fritter into skillet, cooking several fritters at one time, but not overcrowding them. Cook 1 minute, then turn fritters and slightly flatten with a spatula; cook 1 to 2 additional minutes, or until browned on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil as needed.
  3. Remove to a paper towel-lined platter; serve immediately.
Notes
  • Add some extra excitement when serving by putting out bowls of salsa and reduced-fat sour cream for dipping.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These were all right. couldn't really tell there was egg in them. More like a black bean salsa pancake

These were pretty good. I used egg beaters in mine. They turned out just like the picture too. Watch you don't eat too many after they are done cooking. ;)

can't wait to try!

buying what I need & trying soon.

This sounds delicious and healthy; have to try it soon. I love all the "Mr Foods Teams" recipes. And I have many friends who will benefit from your new "Hello Taste, Goodbye Guilt" cookbook. Thanks again and in advance for all your efforts! sincerely, 'little ole' Ohio cook'
