Well, it says 6 servings...but only two of us were home for lunch and this is all I made...we scarffed down every last bite!!! DD#1 said she was full about 3/4 of the way through hers and was going to give the dogs some, but not wanting to deal with the potentially undesireable 'after-effects', I told her NOT to give the dogs any...then she proceeded to finish eating hers. I said, 'I thought you were full!' She replied, 'I was, but if I can't share with the dogs, I'm sure not going to throw the rest I'm stuffed!' Wow, these seemed somewhat medium hot, but the more we ate, the hotter they got. I didn't have a can of diced green chilis so used 4 medium size frozen green chilis (run through my mini-food processor) instead. I also used a quart of my home processed frozen green beans. Yummy! DD#1 and I will certainly be having these again. I'm positive DD#2 and DD#3 would bother love these as well, 'if' they can get past the 'green beans'...yuck frame of mind. We couldn't even taste that these were green beans! Thanks for sharing another winning recipe Barbara!!!

5 star all the way! I used fresh beans (just over a lb) steamed them for 5 minutes) before proceeding with the recipe.Also used 4 fresh Jalapeno peppers finely minced and a cup of hot salsa -(some like it hot)MMMM served with a plain rolled omelet what a delightful easy dinner, Would be a great luncheion or brunch dish too Thanks Barbara for a winner - Love green beans!

This was a perfect way to freshen up green beans. Since we are trying to cut fat, the salt pork way of cooking is out. Loved it!
