Monterey Green Beans With Mushrooms

Cindy Smith Bryson


A delicious way to change up your green beans and get your picky vegetable eaters to love green beans! Leave out the mushrooms if you have mushroom haters. Use fresh, frozen or canned beans. French cut beans make for a pretty presentation. To really spice them up, add some Pepper Jack!
