With wonderful flavors and textures, these crunchy coated bean cakes are delicious with this tangy lime dip.
Combine ingredients in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Careful not to over process it, you don’t want to puree the mixture.
Dredge both sides of the formed cakes in cornmeal, this will create a great crunchy crust. Allow to chill in fridge for 30 minutes to firm them up before frying, so they will not break apart.
Combine all the sauce ingredients together and stir until smooth. The longer the sauce sits, the more flavorful it will be.
