Mexican Baked Beans

Mexican Baked Beans

These baked beans go well with any style of food.

I’ve had Mexican bean dishes of several varieties, yet I’ve never seen Mexican baked beans. Do they have them? I love baked beans. I think the unique flavors of Mexican cuisine could greatly contribute to a baked bean dish. Therefore, I created one. The result was fantastic! I may be breaking ties with my normal baked bean recipes.
