Beans in a creamy taco sauce

I still had some green, yellow and purple beans I had bought for Thanksgiving dinner so they were served as a side dish with neatloaf, mashed potatoes on Friday night.

I’m beat after this weekend and after a week with no school which off course means I have to be even more creative than usual:) I know Bella is so happy to be back to school tomorrow and see her friends again. It’s a good feeling with when your child loves her school.

2 cups green beans, ends and tops cut off
2/3 cup hot water
1 tbs taco spice (maybe more)
1 tbs dijon mustard
2/3 cup sour cream
Salt to taste
1/4 cup chopped Brazil nuts

Place beans, hot water, taco spice and mustard in a saucepan and bring t a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes or until beans are al dente. Add sauce cream, salt and simmer for another minute or so. Right before serving, sprinkle nuts on top.
