  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Cook beans in a small amount of boiling water in a covered large saucepan for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain well. Return to hot pan. Stir in almonds, olive oil and seasoning. Heat through.
  • Tips: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
  • Look for this seasoning blend at a market that specializes in Hispanic foods.
