Spanish- Homemade Baked Beans

This hearty breakfast (or brunch!) is so tasty. It has a little bit of spice from the chorizo, and is perfect for the colder months when you want something warming to keep you going. Every serve has 28 grams of protein which is great for active bodies and, if you're trying to lose weight, the extra protein will definitely keep you feeling fuller for longer too.
