Make these hot or mild it's up to you. I have used Jalapenos but then I usually use 3 or 4, with red hot chillies I usually use 2. This is nice served with marinated baked tofu

Nice balanced flavors - subbed sriracha sauce for the jalapenos, as I'm allergic to fresh chilies. Omitted the bean sprouts (personal taste).

This is a very nice and easy green bean recipe! I would increase the sesame oil next time because I didn't recognize any sesame oil flavour, but otherwise would make it the same again. Thanks for sharing!
