Creole Green Beans are savory and spicy and delicious with bacon, onions, tomatoes, chilies, and cajun seasoning and make a perfect Cajun Side Dish for Mardi Gras or any time.
Creole Green Beans make a perfect side dish to any Mardi Gras celebration meal. Since there is likely a 100% chance I won’t be making it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year, it does not stop me from celebrating at home by making some fabulous cajun / creole recipes.
The first Mardi Gras Celebration recipe is Creole Green Beans. These are one of my favorite side dishes to order at Cajun Seafood restaurants. They are savory and spicy and delicious. With bacon, onions, tomatoes, chilies, and cajun seasoning it has to be amazing.
These Creole Green Beans are loaded with flavor and complement other Cajun or Creole Dishes as well such as Cajun Blackened Chicken, Maque Choux, Baked Chicken Creole, and finish it off with Bananas Foster Upside Down Cupcakes.
