We love green beans, but sometimes you want to change them up a bit and make them taste a little different. These "Rotel Green Beans" do just that and they are really low in fat and calories, which never hurts. That way you can eat more fried chicken! This is so easy. Here is what you will need:
1 Tbs. bacon drippings or olive oil
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 (15 oz.) cans French Style green beans, drained ( you could use just cut green beans also)
1 (10 oz.) can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies (do not drain)
1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning ( I used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
juice of 1/2 lime
Place the bacon drippings or olive oil in a skillet. Use what you prefer, but the bacon drippings add a better flavor. Add the diced onion and saute until soft, add the minced garlic and just saute a little. Garlic burns fast so not too much.
Add the beans and Rotel.
Sprinkle with the seasonings and toss together. Cover and cook on medium low heat just about 15 to 20 minutes!
Serve them up...yum!
