Southern Style Green Beans and New Potatoes
Diane Hopson Smith
This is such an easy dish and it's the way my mother cooked them. I especially loved it when she added new potatoes. The potatoes seem to take in the flavor of the beans, bacon and onions. All you need is a slice of hot cornbread...Mmmm good!
4 or 5 cfresh green beans, snapped
3 or 4new potatoes
1/2 smallonion, chopped
·chicken broth or water
·salt to taste
2 or 3 Tbsppimento, diced (i used jarred) optional
