Chile Spiced Green Beans

Chile Spiced Green BeansI love fresh green beans. I remember my Mom growing green beans in our garden when I was young. (I also have less fond memories of weeding those beans!) I was planning to serve the beans from our latest box with some Oriental spiced grilled pork chops, so I decided to make them spicy. I found this recipe for Sweet and Spicy Green Beans from I decided to use some of the green chile from our box instead of the garlic chili sauce. The results were spicy good! If you are not a big spicy food eater, you might want to cut back on the chile.
