Salsa Green Beans

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


6-8 servings

This simple treatment is a wonderful way of dressing up green beans. Maybe the reason I really enjoy this vegetable is because Mom has been fixing it this way since I was a little girl.


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cut green beans
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large saucepan, cover beans with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onions in butter until tender. Drain beans. Add the tomatoes, salsa, garlic, salt and onions; heat through.
