1/4 cup minced red onion
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ tablespoons cilantro, chopped
¼ cup Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

To prepare salsa, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To prepare patties, place beans in a large bowl; partially mash with a fork. Stir in Panko breadcrumbs and next 9 ingredients (Panko through egg). Divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Place patties in pan coated with oil and cooking spray; cook 5 minutes on each side or until thoroughly heated. Serve with pineapple salsa.
