These Simple Southern Lima Beans couldn’t be easier to prepare, and they pair perfectly with hearty Southern meals. Bacon makes any vegetable better, and it only takes one slice to get that salty, smoky flavor. Try serving these with Baked Shrimp and Grits or Stovetop Barbecue Chicken.Print
Spray a medium sauce pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and cook, stirring frequently, until browned.
Pour in 1 c. water and frozen lima beans. Add more water until beans are just covered. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, until beans are very tender.
A few minutes before serving, add salt to taste. (I like my beans pretty salty, so I add at least 1/2 tsp. salt.)
Serve with hot sauce to add to taste if desired.
