Spicy Mexican bean burger recipe

‘These cheesy, beany, spicy burgers might not be quite what you’d find on the streets of Acapulco, but they’re so tasty you can forgive them a certain lack of authenticity. You can either enjoy them with all the trimmings, or just with the halloumi for a lower calorie count. The ingredients list is quite long, but they freeze well and are a really handy standby veggie dinner.’
