      Have to be honest this did not work for me. I thought it would be more flavorful but it's not. Made as directed. It is easy to make. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.

      Have made green beans with tomato sauce before, but not with the addition of the cumin or sugar. Very flavorful and easy to make. Made for ZWT6 for the No-Nonsense Nibblers.
