READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BonnieZ

This recipe came to me by way of the February 2005 recipe adoption. I found the recipe to be very tasty and different way to prepare lima beans. I did make some minor changes and updated the directions and the result is a creamy sauce with very nice flavor. I hope you enjoy.

This is a different and tasty way to prepare lima beans. The sour cream adds a nice touch and the chives are the perfect accent.
