Spicy Black Bean Burger. I was a little nervous of the fact that it actually contained the word "spicy" in the name of it, since I'm a big spice baby, as I've mentioned before, but I gave it a shot anyway.
First note - the cooking directions say to thaw the burger in the microwave first, then cook it in a skillet for 6-7 minutes. This sounded like way too much time, especially for a thawed burger. I was right. I flipped it about every 15 seconds, and only got about three flips in before it started to turn black on the edges, so I pulled it off the heat. Why would they think it would take a burger 6 minutes to get hot?
Anyway - I didn't know what to put on this burger - the picture just showed more of the same stuff that was in it piled on top, so I just put it on a bun plain, since I didn't have any of the ingredients on hand. Then, I bit into it. First impressions were that it definitely wasn't as spicy as I'd feared. Once I got past that, I realized that it didn't actually have much flavor. I decided it needed something tomato-based, and since it's a black bean burger, I added some salsa. Now it tasted like slightly mushy salsa! As weird as that sounds, it was actually pretty tasty. I'd eat this again.
Texture - crispy on the outside, kind of mealy on the inside
Flavor - aside from being slightly spicy, it was fairly bland by itself
Final grade for this attempt: B
