Simple side dish

We very much appreciate the flavor added by the blistering process.  I cooked them for several extra minutes, but we like our green beans nice and soft.

The red pepper is the secret ingredient that makes these simple beans special. We sub apple cider vinegar for the dry white wine and sometimes add a pinch of garlic powder. I may never make green beans any other way!

I have made this twice - both times I used dry sherry instead of wine. The second time I made it I added thinly sliced red and yellow peppers and thinly sliced onions. Everyone loves it! Perfect for company because it comes together at the last minute.
