Southwest Green Beans


Green beans may very well be one of my absolute favorite vegetables! 
And nothing, I mean NOTHING, beats string beans fresh from the garden.
Now, it's not quite bean season yet, but I do have a really great recipe for you to
"Spice Up" your green bean hum-drum! 

Southwest Green Beans

Let me show you how I made them. 



Southwest Green Beans:
*Prep Time:  10 min. *Cook Time: 20 min. *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings:  6-8


Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. of frozen green beans, thawed
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 c. chicken broth
Tools:
  • Deep dish skillet
  • Chef's knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring Spoons

To begin, place your skillet over medium/high heat and add
some oil.


When skillet is hot, add the onions.
Cook until soft and translucent.


Next add the red bell pepper and cook until tender.


Now, add the garlic and cook until you smell it coming from the pan.


Time to add your green beans.


Now add the spices, and bouillon
 (if you are using that instead of boxed/canned stock.)


Add water or stock and season with salt and pepper.


Cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, until the beans are tender.


And there you have it!
A fresh new take on a dinner classic! 
I know you and your family are going to love it!
I served this up with my Homemade Salisbury Steak and Classic Rice Pilaf! 
Give these a try for dinner tonight
and as always....
