Black Bean Sliders with Avocado Mayo

I made these sliders for a recent party with friends.  They were a big hit, and made great leftovers too.  They can get a little crumbly, so next time I might go a little heavier on the wet ingredients to hold things together.

From Mother Thyme.

  • 1 cup white onion, diced
