Recipe by Crafty Lady 13
Perk up everyday green beans with this snappy saute recipe. Cayenne pepper gives the beans a little kick and onion and chopped sweet red pepper add a boost of flavor. From the April/May 2003 Taste of Home's Light & Tasty magazine.

This was a nice twist on green beans. I am always looking for ways to kick them up a notch, as I think green beans can be quite boring and blah. I enjoyed the nice mix of garlic, ginger, teriyaki and hot sauce - it definitely made these green beans yummy.
