  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel.
  2. Drain and discard liquid from 1 can of green beans; empty both cans into a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer; add bacon and sweet onion.
  3. Increase heat to medium-low. Stir cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg into the green beans. Cook the mixture until the onions are transparent but not yet soft, about 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I don't use measuring spoons for this recipe. I take a small spoon from my drawer and add two heaps of brown sugar (which I'm assuming is about the same amount as two tablespoons) and sprinkle on the chili powder according to taste.
  • It's okay to substitute real bacon bits to cut down on time.

This is a nice way to dress up a boring can of string beans. They were more sweet than spicy to me, so I might try adding a dash of cayenne next time. Otherwise, very nice. Thanks.
