Heat large skillet to medium heat. Melt butter and sauté onions, garlic, and red pepper until soft, 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients and cooked vegetables together. Form palm-sized patties by pressing mixture in between hands. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Serve with sweet rice, black beans and/or avocado tomato salsa.
Mexican Sweet Rice
In large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Sautee onions until soft, 5-7 minutes. Stir in rice to coat grains in butter. Increase temperature to high and stir in bouillon cube, water, bay leaf, salt and pepper.
Once rice has come to a boil, reduce heat and stir in sugar. Cook covered on low heat 20 minutes or until rice has softened completely. Stir in chopped cilantro right before serving.
