Green Beans with Tomatoes, Bacon and Onions

One of my followers sent me a recipe he wanted converted into a slow cooker dish.  I'm SO glad he did!   I added my own touch to it and it turned out amazing!  The green beans cooked perfectly in the slow cooker!  The onions added so much flavor and the tomatoes added just the right amount of brightness needed!  The bacon added just a touch of smokiness.  I felt as though this dish needed just a hint of spice, so I added a tiny bit of red pepper.  It was perfect!

This would be a great addition to any meal, holiday or not!  I sure hope your family enjoys it!

Green Beans with Tomatoes, Bacon and Onions

This makes about 4 servings.
2 1/2 - 3 cups fresh green beans, ends snapped off, washed and halved
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2oz. fresh bacon bits
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. red pepper
1 chicken bouillon cube
1/2 cup water

In your crock, place the green beans, tomatoes, onions and bacon bits.
(Isn't that pretty?!)
Top with the onion powder, garlic powder, salt and red pepper.

Give it a stir, tuck your bouillon cube down into the bottom and add your water.

Cook on LOW for 4 hours or on HIGH for 2 hours.
Serve and Enjoy!
