Black Bean Burgers with Mango Salsa

Being from Texas I’m not so hot on meals without meat but this one was actually pretty good.  The end result was a litle mushier than a burger would normally be, but the taste was pretty great.  The mango salsa was very very good, probably could have used a little balsamic vinegar though for more flavour.

Makes 6 Burgers
