My Cajun grandmother does green beans this same way(minus the tomatoes and green pepper).We always add a teaspoon or so of sugar to ours so I added it to this too!!Ooooh weee this were good!I let 'em simmer for a while longer with the tomatoes and we couldnt have asked for a better side dish!Thanks for sharing!!
