Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add chopped pepper, onion, and garlic and cook over medium heat until peppers and onions are soft, about 5-6 minutes. Gently blot some of the moisture out. Place in a large bowl or in a food processor with the remaining ingredients (cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, bread crumbs (or panko), cheese, eggs, worcestershire, ketchup (or mayo or BBQ sauce) salt, and pepper.
Stir or pulse everything together, then add the black beans. Mash with a fork or pulse the mixture, leaving some larger chunks of beans.
Form into patties – about 1/3 cup of mixture in each.
