I am not a fan of canned baked beans but my husband is. In fact, he will eat just about anything put in front of him. One day I decided to spice up the store bought ones and the result was delicious. In fact, it is one of my husband's favorite dishes. The next time I make them I will take a photo! Note: you can more or less adjust the ingredients to your liking.
