“This is the best green bean dish I have ever had! The mixture of onion, bell pepper, celery, tomatoes, and cheese blends so nicely with the green beans. I got the recipe from an friend's mother over 20 years ago and she got the recipe from her mother who had a local cooking show in the southwest Louisana/ southeast Texas area. You can taste the southern Creole influence in this dish. You won't be disappointed!”
