Spicy Green Bean Fries

Vegetables usually only make one appearance at Superbowl parties and spreads – as cold and uninviting crudite fighting for attention next to sliders, chili, wings, and more. So why not make vegetables a star this year by whipping up these simple, crunchy green bean fries? Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, I usually grab for this skinny ranch, and watch as a green vegetable steals the show.
