Easy Green Bean and Red Potato Side Dish Recipe

I made these yesterday for Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws. They were delicious!

Easy Green Beans and Red Potatoes

6 slices of bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 small onion, chopped
2 (15 ounce) cans of whole green beans
2 cups water
10 small red potatoes, cubed and boiled in 1 can of chicken broth until tender
2 tsps or 2 cubes of chicken bouillon
Black pepper, to your liking

Heat a saucepan over medium heat, and add the bacon pieces. Fry for a few minutes, then add the onions. Cook and stir until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the beans and add to the saucepan along with the 2 cups of water, cooked potatoes, bouillon and black pepper. Stir to blend, then simmer for about 20 minutes. If you wish to simmer longer, add more water to keep the vegetables from drying out.

Serve hot. Enjoy!
