How to Make Black Bean Cakes w/sour cream sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium sized sauce pan, when it comes to a boil add the cornmeal and stir quickly to saturate the meal, you may add a bit of water if it needs it but it should be like a thick paste.
  2. Cook for about 1 or 2 minutes and careful not to scorch it. Take it off the stove and put it in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the oil for frying and combine everything until well mixed.
  4. Shape into patties (you may work with the size but dont make them too large or they are hard to flip over without breaking them during cooking. I usually make them about 2 inches across. (dampening your hands makes them easier to shape)
  5. Heat enough oil in a frying pan to coat bottom nicely and place patties into hot grease, fry on both sides until golden brown, remove from oil and drain on a paper towel while you fry the rest. You may have to add more oil during this process.
  6. Serve them immediately with sour cream and or salsa
