Baked beans are a great long lasting shot of energy to start off the day.
Unfortunately the majority of store bought baked beans are loaded with sugar and other nasties that our bodies don’t need.
The solution is to make your own.
With this recipe I have chosen a spicy Mexican flavour but you could easily substitute other tastes you desire.
