This is a family recipe, ususally a big hit at thanksgiving dinners. I have not found one person who did not like it. The ritz mix on top add the perfect seasoning and crunch to the recipe

I made this dish last year for Thanksgiving and forgot to rate it! I came back to look up the recipe because I was asked by my daughter to make the same one I made last year. I do recall that I cooked and used fresh whole green beans as we do not have the canned versions available. I also used cream of chicken soup for the same reason....celery soup is not available. Evidently this is a great dish being it was the first dish remembered and requested by my child. Thank you!

I didnt have sour cream, but i had french onion dip. That gave it quite a whollop! Very good stuff. Thanks for posting!

This went over very well at the potluck I brought it to. I used cream cheese (about 5 oz.) instead of sour cream, and cream of mushroom instead of celery, because that's what I had on hand. That said, I found it a little too rich for my tastes. Also, if I do this one again I'll use regular green beans, probably frozen.
