  3. Place bell pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Combine with the black beans.
  4. In a separate small bowl mix together the egg, chili powder, cumin and chili sauce. Add to the black beans and combine well. Divide and form mixture into four patties.
  5. Place the patties on the baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping half way through cooking. (If grilling, place patties on lightly oiled aluminum foil and grill about 15 minutes, flipping half way through cooking.) Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!
