    Mexican Green Beans Created by breezermom

    I really enjoyed these! I did throw in a little bit of diced jalapeno to spice it up a bit. The color contrast was really nice. I cooked my green beans just to before crisp tender before adding the rotel and basil. Sort of adjusted the heat according to the meat I was cooking so they would come off together. It worked! Sorry for such a bad photo.....I don't get home until after dark now. Thanks for sharing!

    These were tasty! The beans were still crunchy after 10 minutes. They needed more simmering liquid, so I tossed in some chicken stock and covered the skillet to get them tender. Next time I would parboil them before proceeding, because I couldn't wait for them any longer and they came to the table underdone. I was glad to find a Mexican green bean recipe, though, and they went nicely with tacos and rice. Thanks for the post.

    A quick and easy way to add little kick to your green beans. Made as written using Rotel medium. You know we will be making these tasty beans again. Thanks for the post.
