Step 1

1.In a large bowl, combine the black beans with the 2 tablespoons of tahini. Using a fork, mash up about ⅔ of the beans.
2.Gently mix in the jalapeno, onion, garlic, and spices. Fold in the panko bread crumbs until well combined, but remember, you don't want to mush up the in-tact beans!
3.The mixture should come together now, so form it into 4-6 medium-sized patties and make sure they're tightly packed together.
4.Place the patties on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for an hour to help them hold together.
5.As you wait for the patties to be ready, make the tahini by combining all of the sauce ingredients in a food processor. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
6.To make the guacamole, mash the avocados and cover with the juice of 1 lime. Then, mix in the pepitas and salt.
7.When the patties are almost ready, a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
8.Once the oil is hot, add 2-3 burgers to the skillet, making sure there is plenty of room to flip them. Cook for 5-8 minutes per side (the thicker your patties, the longer they'll need to cook). Flip carefully and cook for another 5-8 minutes on the other side, until brown and cooked through.
9.Serve the burgers with lettuce, tomato, the Crunchy Guacamole, and the Chipotle Lime Tahini!
