Slow cooked Green Beans with Chilis

slow cooked green beans with chilis

Ok so this isn't really intended to be a spicy dish, it's just supposed to be homey, but I had a can of tomato with chili, and if any dish can use a pick me up, it's green beans,

Saute onion in olive oil, on med low heat til golden in color
Add garlic, and cook 30 seconds.
Stir in tomato paste
Stir in chopped tomato with chili, you can of course use something not spicy
Add green beans, I like them thin and long, but go with your own preference.
Add water so the beans are mostly submerged. Bring to a boil and simmer. Cook until very tender, this will take a really long time, this one pot cook for just over 3 hours, to get it really tender, but still holding it's own. Your looking for the color of green olives, You can taste to see if it's right.

Serve warm on rice with yogurt or sour cream, to cut some of the heat. This can also be served as a salad.

1 large onion, chopped
olive oil
3-5 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 14 oz can chopped tomato with chili (or without)_
1 bag frozen green beans
salt and pepper
