I love this recipe I originally tried it because I don;t like mushroom soup which most greenbean recipies call for. The cheesy green beans are really good even for leftovers. I use fresh green beans and I cook them down to where they are soft before baking them in the casserole they have lots of good flavor and are a must at our holiday table. The only change I make is I line the bottom of the dish with the fried onions and then top with them as well to add a bit more flavor. Besides you can never have too many fried onions! Read More

This is very similar to a recipe I've used for years. Instead of cajun seasoning I use Ro-tel tomatoes. Any brand of diced tomatoes with green chiles will do. Read More

I don't even know what to say about this except that if my wife didn't stop me I would have eaten it all. I will hold off on the salt next time b/c between the the canned green beans cheese soup and onions there was plenty. This is comfort food at it's best! Read More

Love this recipe!! I leave out the salt because I use Zatarain's Creole Seasoning and it is salty enough! I use 3 cans of green beans instead of 2 it was just too cheeses the first time! We have this at least once a month!! Sometimes I use French cut green beans just to change it a little. Read More

This was pretty good. Mine came out just a little watery though..but still good. I think I will add a different cheese or mix up some cheeses and omit the cream of chicken. I also added some bacon bits to the green beans. Pretty darn good. Read More
