Spanish Green Bean Recipe

A Spanish green bean recipe made with canned green beans and seasoned with onion, green pepper, diced tomatoes and topped with toasted croutons.

These Spanish styled beans are a nice vegetable side dish to serve with meat or chicken for a savory evening dinner.

I really enjoyed the flavor of this unique recipe. There are not many that would combine a standard garden vegetable like green beans with tomatoes and green pepper.

I especially thought the toasted croutons on top made a nice addition. You get a bit of buttery, salty, crunchy flavor from the bread crumbs that really adds to the entire dish.

This vegetable recipe is quick and easy, needing only about 15 minutes cooking time if your green beans are already cooked.

The addition of the onion and green pepper cook in well so that you cannot really tell they are part of the dish, but still impart a delicious flavor.
