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.
