    I was captured by the photo, but I thought the green beans were snap I tried it with fresh snap peas and chinese pea pods too. Yum-m-o. Thanks

    I made a few revisions to accommodate family tastes. I used sugar snap peas, water chestnuts and red & orange peppers as well as using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It was deemed worthy of making again by all. Sliced tomatoes and garlic pita chips made a complete meal!
