Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ shallot, minced

  • ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

  • 8 ounces fresh green beans, cut into 2 inch pieces

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and jalapeno; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Add green beans and season with salt.
