Creole Green Beans

"A nice way to spice up green beans. Good, but not for the kids! Be careful of adding extra salt due to the sodium content of some of the ingredients."

These were pretty good. Made to the recipe with the exception of the creole seasoning. I was ready to put it in when I found I didn't have any! So added some paprika, basil, oregano, thyme, garl...

These were really pretty darned good and a far cry from plain old cooked frozen green beans. GREAT way to doctor them up, but I can’t imagine using the amount of cayenne pepper called for. I c...

Good side dish, did not use the butter b/c bacon had plenty of fat, used cajun spice b/c that's what I had. Many variations of spices can be used with this recipe as a base, will keep subbing an...
