Want to learn how to make a healthy southern green beans? I outlined how to do this step-by-step below. Comfort food never tasted better...or healthier!
Add the onion and cook until tender, about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, cayenne, and black pepper, and cook for an additional minute.
Add the green beans and cooked bacon and stir to combine. Add enough chicken stock to just cover the green beans.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook, covered, 40-50 minutes, depending on preferred level of tenderness. Check flavor again and season to taste as needed. The longer you cook them, the more tender they’ll be.
