Roasted Pepper and Black Bean Burgers

I got this recipe online for the black bean burgers, and only changed a few things to up the flavor. They taste really fresh and John and I really like them. 

1 16oz can Black Beans
3 pieces roasted read pepper from the jar (1 if they are full size red peppers)
3 garlic cloves
1/2 sweet onion 
1 small bunch cilantro
1 tsp crushed red pepper or 1Tbsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Mash black beans in a large bowl. In a food processor,  blend red pepper, onion, garlic and cilantro until fine. Mix in with the mashed beans. Next, mix the egg, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, salt and egg until combined. Pour over bean mixture. Then drain any liquid from mixture by either setting over a colander, or squeezing with cheese cloth. Once liquid is removed, add 1/2 cup bread crumbs and stir.

Form patties (makes about 5). Roll patties in the leftover bread crumbs, and place in a skillet with olive oil. Cook until heated through, browned and firmed up. Serve with desired toppings.
