South of the Border Green Beans  

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything

Kick your green beans up a notch this Thanksgiving with a spicy, colorful twist that'll even make your turkey jealous!


Many Thanksgiving dinner hosts ask their guests to bring a side dish. But rather than bring plain old boring green beans, think outside the box and add some new flavors and textures to the Thanksgiving spread this year.

These South of the Border Green Beans take the traditional green bean side dish and add a spicy little twist to the old favorite.

Green Beans with Red Bell Pepper and Jalapeno

A few fresh veggies can transform plain green beans into colorful beans with flair. We have a little red bell pepper, shallots, and jalapeno for the real blast of spiciness!

 

Easy Recipe for Green Bean Side Dish

Thanksgiving is a time when the oven is prime real estate, so anything that can be cooked on the stove is a plus in my book. Just sauté the veggies for a couple of minutes until soft, add the green beans, and cook until they're tender. A splash of lemon juice finishes off the dish with a bright, fresh flavor.

In no time at all, you have a vibrant side dish that makes that old green bean casserole look boring and washed up. So instead of sticking with the same side dishes this year, give this spicy twist on green beans a try!
