Mexican Beans

Mexican beans on toast

Ingredients (serves 3):

  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 chilli, diced
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 punnet mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • 1x 400ml can baked beans
  • 1 400ml can spicy beans
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 fresh bunch coriander, chopped
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Rapeseed oil
  • Bread (and butter if preferred)


  1. Begin by adding a drop of oil to a large frying pan on a medium heat. Once heated, add the onion, garlic, chilli, pepper and mushrooms. Stir well and fry until everything softens.
  2. Meanwhile add the avocado to a bowl with the juice of half a life and salt and pepper to season. Mix together well to form a guacamole consistency. Stir through half of the chopped coriander and combine.
  3. Add the baked beans and spicy beans to the frying pan with a teaspoon of hot paprika, stir well. Continue cooking until the beans have heated through.
  4. Toast your bread using a toaster or grill. Add a little butter to each slice whilst warm, so that it melts a little before spreading.
  5. Serve by spooning the bean mix over two slices of toast per person, with a spoon of guacamole on the side.
  6. Season with further salt and pepper if required.
