Yes, it's time to celebrate those who have BEAN there. Its Homecoming weekend in Denison, and we are celebrating with Black Bean cakes that make a snappy addition to a simple meal before the game. The display plate uses green onions, and mango strips. Easy to make, and great to impress. Sting 'EM!

Black Bean Jackets
Serving Size : 8
30 ounces canned black beans -- drained and rinsed
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chili paste
2 Tablespoons chili powder -- ancho or chipotle
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/4 cup cilantro -- chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt -- or to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Place the beans and vegetable oil in a food processor, and puree. Add the chili paste, chili powder, cumin, cilantro, and salt. Puree for one minute to combine.
3. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place a 2 Tablespoon size ball of the mixture onto the sheet. Press evenly with a large, flat spatula to make cakes 1/4 inch tall and about 3 to 4 inches across. Repeat using all of the mixture.
4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cakes are warm and will glide easily onto a spatula. Move gently to the plate.
