Spicy Green Beans

Updated: May 20, 2021

Green beans are delicious and nutritious but sometimes home cooks can be at a loss on how to season them. Gone are the days where the most popular way to cook green beans is to boil them with onions, ham/or bacon, and potatoes. The southern method is delicious but not very healthy since it involves cooking the green beans for so long that all the nutrients are boiled out of them. This recipe is delicious and a twist on green beans while still having a short enough cooking time to preserve the nutrients. Once you try this recipe, you'll want to make spicy green beans with everything!
