Wax Beans Extra-Ordinaire

Judi Thompson


My mother always added onion and bacon drippings to canned beans. I found wax beans (the yellow ones) in the pantry so decided to improvise. We had a neighbor who put canned tomatoes in hers. To me, mushrooms added to anything is an improvement as well as green peppers. I combined all the ingredients and this is what I got...umm! Would go well with just about any meat dish, and looks pretty enough for company. Just add more ingredients to "stretch" the recipe.
