Spanish Green Beans

You know how I pride myself on dishes that stir and cook up quickly. Well, this one take a few more minutes than some of my recipes, but you'll soon see it's worth it. The stewed tomatoes need to cook a little longer for all the flavors to shake hands and say howdy. Besides, the dish requires only about five minutes of "baby-sitting" and no more than a half hour to reach perfection!

Serves 6 (1 cup)

3/4 cup chopped onion
5 1/2 cups frozen cut green beans
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1 3/4 cups (one 14-ounce can) stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/3 cup Heinz Light Harvest or Healthy Choice ketchup
2 tablespoons Hormel Bacon Bits
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, sauté onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Add green beans, water and garlic. Mix well to combine. Lower heat. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until green beans are tender. Add undrained tomatoes, ketchup, bacon bits, and black pepper. mix well to combine. Continue cooking 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
