  3. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and add the remaining cup of black beans and bread crumbs. Mix using a wooden spoon.
  4. Divide and form the mixture into 12 equal patties. Place 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture onto 6 of the patties, and then top with the remaining 6 plain patties. Completely pinch sides closed to seal in the mixture and reform patties.
  5. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Spray or brush the grill first with a little bit of oil will prevent burgers from sticking.
