1.) Using a 1.5” round cutter, cut 12 smaller circles out of each tortilla, giving you 144 1.5” discs. Reserve warm.

2.) In a food processor, combine both beans, onion, jalapeno, garlic, breadcrumbs, eggs, cumin, coriander, cayenne, and cilantro. Pulse until mixture is well combined with a coarse texture. Using a tablespoon, scoop 72 rounded tablespoons and flatten into patty shapes. Reserve cold for service.

3.) To make Chipotle Yogurt: combine yogurt and chipotle paste. Mix well to combine. Reserve refrigerated.

4.) To serve: pre-heat a flat top grill. Heat oil and brown each falafel on each side for 2 minutes. Season with lime-salt. To assemble each mini burger, place a 1.5” round tortilla disc down and top with a slice of pickled onion, falafel, jalapeno slice, and tomato slice. Spread ½ tsp. of the Chipotle Yogurt sauce on the top tortilla and place, sauce side down, on top, forming a mini burger. Serve immediately.
