Sweet Chili Green Beans

Sweet Chili Green Beans from Food Fashion and Fun

I absolutely love green beans. While they are in season, I tend to get them every time I go to the farmer’s market. Most of the time I just boil and then toss them with salt, pepper and butter. That gets boring after a few weeks so I like to try something different. I’m sucker for spicy food so I wanted to incorporate a spicy sauce. I opened my fridge and saw Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and thought – ‘BINGO. We have a winner!’ It’s sweet and a little bit spicy. I added ginger and garlic to round out the flavors for an amazing side!
