The best green bean recipe in my opinion! This certainly was packed with flavor. I used your above mentioned blackened seasoning (by Miller) and it is my favorite spice mix I've made. The pecans should not be missed. They added so much. My whole family enjoyed, even though my daughter does not like spicy (the pecans were a bit too spicy for her).My son gobbled his beans down before eating anything on his plate. I can't wait to make again! Roxygirl
