When my kids were small, they didn’t care for green beans or many other vegetables so I developed this version in a way I knew they would at least try them.( Come on , who doesn’t like bacon) They can’t get enough of them now and I bet your crew will love them as well!

SERVES: 5 to 6

1 1/2 to 2lbs. fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed at the top, and cut in half, then steamed for 8 to 9 minutes, then plunged into a cold water bath to stop the cooking and set aside, or may be stored in a large baggie in the refrigerator for later preparation
6 slices of bacon – fried crisp and set onto paper towels to strain until cooled, then chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
½ white onion, chopped fine
3 cloves fresh garlic- minced
½ teaspoon Texas Gourmet’s Sweet Chipotle Season-All
1/2 stick – unsalted butter- heated over med. heat until the bubbles stop

Place butter on stove and reheat to med. heat, add onion, saute until clear , then add the green beans, increase heat to med. high, and stir fry to coat them with the butter, now add the minced garlic , toss for approx. 1 to 2 minutes gently, add the bacon and toss again, now add the Sweet Chipotle Season All, and toss one more time .
