Servings 6 Burgers


  • 1 15oz Can of Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion, small dice about 1 cup
  • 2 large Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • Pinch of Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper to Taste
  • Cup Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Masa Harina I like the brand Maseca


  • Preheat oven to 425*. Line a baking tray with parchment.
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, sauté onion in olive oil until its soft, about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper and paprika and continue cooking to 1 minute.
  • Add minced garlic and cook for one minute more.
  • Add buffalo sauce and immediately remove from heat. Stir well.
  • Place the chickpeas in a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher until most of the chickpeas are broken up. See photo above for reference.
  • Add the onion and buffalo mixture into the mashed chickpeas and stir well.
  • Add masa harina into the bowl and stir well. The mixture should be moist but you should be able to form it with your hands without it sticking too badly. If your dough is too sticky, add more masa harina 1 tablespoon at a time until you are able to work with it.
  • Divide the burger dough into 6 equal portions, then form them into burgers with your hands.
  • Place onto a parchment lined baking stray and bake for 30 minutes, stopping after 15 minutes to flip the burgers so they get brown on both sides.
