green beans


  • 5 slices Bacon
  • 1 whole Onion (medium)
  • 4 cans (14.5 Oz. Cans) Whole Green Beans (or 1 To 2 Poounds Fresh)
  • 2 cans (14.5 Oz.) Whole Tomatoes
  • Cayenne Pepper To Taste

Preparation Instructions

Slice the bacon up into 1 inch pieces and start cooking them in a large skillet or Dutch oven. Keep cooking until bacon turns brown. Meanwhile, dice 1 medium onion. When the bacon is beginning to brown, drain some of the fat and then add the onions. Cook, stirring now and then, until bacon and onions are both turning a nice golden.

Drain the green beans and add them right into the pan with the bacon and the onions. Next, throw in the two cans of whole tomatoes with their juice. Stir around gently and then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 45 minutes.

When they are finished cooking add cayenne pepper to taste up to about ¼ of a teaspoon for a hotter dish. Stir gently and serve!
