My husband loves these, he has them with everything. I was not a big green bean fan until I tried these.

Strange that this hasn't been reviewed yet as it's terrific! I recently read that more highly spiced food makes one feel "fuller". Well this recipe is a great addition to the weight-loss diet we're on. DH doesn't like his vegetables crisp, so we went for the mushy & it was still good. Think this would be a perfect picnic/buffet addition (with a little toothpick sign warning "Spicy!") Thanks Dancer.
