Southwestern Pinto Bean Burgers with Chipotle Mayo

The flavor of this bean burger is awesome! The chipotle mayo adds great spice to it as well--but I think the burger stands alone just fine. This will become a staple in our house. I did have a problem with the patties holding together as I cooked them, so next time will make 6 or 8 smaller burgers and I think they'll hold together much better. I cooked them until they had a nice golden crust on each side, and once I carefully laid a patty on a bun and smooshed it all together, the sandwich held together fine while eating it. YUM!

    of South Korea announced that Korean Air would
    acquire Asiana Airlines. The acquisition
    will create a combined low-cost carrier that will operate out of regional airports
    in the country. The Ministry of Land, Transport and Infrastructure also
    plans to integrate Air Busan, Air Seoul, and Jin Air into a single low-cost carrier.
