Heat oil in a large pan, once warm saute the onions until soft. Next, add the chiles, cook for 2 minutes then add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add the green beans, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook until green beans are to the desired texture. Once green beans are to desired texture pour the lightly beaten eggs into the pan. Stir and cook until eggs have cooked through. Try not to overcook or burn the eggs, as this will give the dish a bitter taste.
Serve with refried beans, tortillas and salsa of choice. Additionally, they can be served as a side dish to any Mexican meal.
*Cut ends off fresh green beans first. If fresh is not available use frozen. For frozen, no need to defrost just add at the time called for in the recipe. Additionally, canned beans can be used, simply drain before using.**Homemade refried beans are way better than canned ones, try my recipe "How to Make Vegan Refried Beans"
