Spicy Green Beans

Phew, what a weekend! Anyone else feel that way? We are officially moved out of our old aparmtment and into a different apartment that isn’t our new apartment. Wait…what? Yeah….. our lease ended and our next lease doesn’t begin for two more weeks, so we are staying with a friend for two weeks and THEN moving into our new apartment. I’m exhausted thinking about it but, it is what it is. 

Last week we packed up all of our things, food included. Of course, we couldn’t pack much of our frozen/refrigerated food, so I did my best to whip up some meals with what we had. One thing we had? Trader Joe’s frozen green beans. You know the kind I’m talking about? Fresh green beans are my #1 pick, but the TJ’s kind are a close second. Rather than eating them plain Jane, I wanted to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to them.
Spicy Green Beans
Onions+red pepper flakes+spicy tortilla chips=spicy green beans! In an ideal situation I probably would have used spicier chips but, like I said, I was trying to get rid of the food we had, not go out and buy more. 
If you’re making these in bulk be sure to add the chips last and to only add as much as you will actually eat. I say this because if you eat these beans as leftovers, you’re not going to want to store the beans and chips in the refrigerator because then they will get soggy. …ew. Just a tip!

Spicy Green Beans
  • 1 lb. green beans (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 onion
  • >¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup spicy tortilla chips (for topping)
  1. Cook the green beans in boiling water over the stovetop until they are soft.
  2. While the beans are cooking, peel and dice the onion. I tried to cut mine into onion "strings", but you can really cut it up however you'd like.
  3. Cook the onion in a pan over the stove until they are slightly browned; add red pepper flakes.
  4. Combine beans and onions into a bowl and stir; add tortilla chips on top before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
Q: What did you do this weekend? Have you ever made a BIG move? The last time I made a big move was when I went away to college, and that was only a 2 hour move. I can’t imagine moving cross country!

And the perfect afternoon snack. And perfect for late-night cravings. ….Um, yeah, I like smoothies.  I remember the first time I heard of a “green smoothie”…talk…
