I have lived in Missouri for 30+ years but, never forgot my Texas roots. I was inspired by some green beans that I ate at a local Ma & Pa restaurant while visiting my parents in Jacksboro years ago. This is such a delicious side. It is so easy and my husband absolutely loves it. It works well with my low carb eating too.
