extra-virgin olive oil
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

Very nice, tho' I did change the cooking method a bit as I've never had the best success cooking green beans in a fry pan. And in this case you were to cook the beans along with the already cooked jalapeno and shallots, which just didn't appeal to me. So...I cooked the vegetables first, adding more jalapeno than called for and some chopped red pepper as well (mainly because I'm on the road again in the morning and wanted to make use of what I had in the fridge). Meantime, I cooked the green beans in boiling, salted water for five minutes, then immediately shocked them in an ice water bath. This made quick work of finishing them up in the fry pan with the sweated vegetables once I was about ready to serve, with little chance of over or undercooking them - this method also kept them a bright and vibrant green. The lemon at the end lent a fresh flavor and brought out just the right hint of tanginess. No worries about there being too much heat in the jalapenos, since you're not using the seeds or membranes. Never would have thought to use jalapenos in green beans - it was an interesting and flavorful addition.
It was far too lemony by adding the lemon juice at the end. Tried it a second time, skipping that step, and it was ok. Hot, but not spicy.
excellent recepie !!! i cook something like this all the time. i always have frozen green beans in the freezer and along with green chilli i also use a pinch of red chilli flakes and instead of lemon juice 1/2 tsp dry mango powder. all the dry spices just stick on the beans and its heavenly to eat.
I fixed as written but next time I would boil the beans for 4 or 5 minutes and stick them in an ice bath before proceeding with the recipe for they were a bit tough still. I loved the combo of the jalapenos and lemon though and I will make these again.
WOWZA!!! Delicious! LOVED these beans and it was simple ingrediants!!! and i'm the worlds toughest critic when it comes to food! i will make this over and over and over for my family!!!
These were quick and easy. Next time I'll use more jalapenos.
add a little sesame seeds and De'Lish
My wife and I really liked these. Very simple to prepare and cook. The jalapeno I chose happened to not be too hot, but the flavor came through along with the shallots. Will most definately make again!
