Good Morning New Orleans / NOLA Flavor

Cajun green beans from Jon Huffman

You will need:

1 pound fresh green beans

1 medium onion, diced

½  pound Tasso ham, diced

4 ounces pecans, chopped

Cajun seasoning to taste

Salt and pepper to taste

Snap off the ends of the green beans and remove any strings that come loose.  Place in large cooking pot and add just enough water to almost cover the green beans.  Add Tasso, onions, pecans, Cajun seasoning and salt and pepper.  Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to simmer.  Simmer the pot for at least one hour, until green beans are soft and lose their “wild” flavor.
