This is an easy recipe. I had never eaten green beans with sour cream, but it tasted good. I served it with Tender Italian Baked Chicken from this site.

These sounded better than they were. The sour cream got gloppy when I added it to the hot green beans and it didn't look appetizing at all. I thought the taste was okay but my husband didn't like them at all. Thanks, I had fun making a new recipe.

These were okay. Nothing that stood out to me to where I would make them again.

My family loved this recipe. Two of the children didn't like sour cream but still loved the dish without it. My daughter said this was a keeper for my recipes book.
