Mexican Green Beans

Ejotes Guisados (Mexican Green Beans)

A simple, spicy and flavorful dish that pairs quite well with almost any meal. And by almost, I mean it that it probably won’t go too well with your morning cup of coffee and bowl of cereal. If you’re looking for something a little less spicy, just cut down the jalapeno to one (or less if your peppers are spicy). My peppers from the garden weren’t too overly spicy this year so I went with two… and I like it spicy.  Removing the seeds in your peppers will also tone down the spiciness.   I added honey at the end to balance out the lime and the spice but you can also use a little bit of sugar if you would like to keep the recipe vegan.  Enjoy!
