In a small saucepan, over high heat, bring the first 9 ingredients to a boil, then turn off the heat, stirring until dissolved. Add the chilies and garlic. Remove from heat.
Wash and trim the green beans. Bring a large pot of water with the 1 teaspoon salt to a boil over medium heat. Add the beans. Cook until the beans begin to turn bright green and are just tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Rinse immediately with cold water and put them in an ice bath for 10 minutes. Drain well.
Pack beans in sterilized jars then cover with the vinegar mixture.
Place lids and caps on cleaned rimmed jars.
Process in a hot water bath for 5 minutes, remove and cool in a draft free spot for 24 hours.
You can also put them in sterilized jars and refrigerate instead of doing the canning process. Let flavors meld for 1 week. Just keep under refrigeration and eat within 1 month.
I canned 2 jars and the 3rd was what I had left over for munching which was refrigerated.
