We used our own canned green beans so we just had to heat them up. I cut the brown sugar in half. I can't wait to try this with fresh green beans this summer.

These green beans were really good and the cajon seasoning gave them great flavor!! The only change I made was to steam the green beans rather than boil them. Will be making these again and again, I love fresh green beans so always looking for great recipes! Made for I Recommend Tag.
