Crunchy Green Beans with Bacon Recipe
- ½ pound bacon
- 1 ½ pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
- 1 small onion, diced
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- garlic salt to taste
- Italian seasoning to taste
- ground black pepper to taste
- 1 (4 ounce) package flavored tortilla snack chips (such as Doritos®), crushed
step 1: Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Reserve 1/4 cup bacon grease in the skillet; discard remainder.
step 2: While the bacon is cooking, place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add beans, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
step 3: Add onion and garlic to the skillet with the reserved bacon grease. Cook over medium heat until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter until melted. Add green beans, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper; toss until combined. Mix in crushed chips.
