Got this one from: Shine on Yahoo! / Better Homes & Gardens
Thought it looked interesting, might be a way to get the wife to eat Lima beans! I might take a pepper slightly up or down the Scoville scale though depending on who’s dining, and substitute garlic for the onion…

This low-fat, high-fiber bean recipe makes a good side dish to grilled beef, pork, or chicken. The beans add fiber; the poblano peppers are sweet and mildly hot; and the dark beer adds robust flavor. If you want to add more fiber in your diet, you can try a variety of bean recipes.
Top ideas for dinner tonight:
- 12 ounces shelled baby lima beans or frozen baby lima beans
- 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
- 1 small poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup dark beer
- 1 small red onion, quartered and sliced (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- In a 2-quart saucepan cook fresh beans, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes. (Or, cook frozen beans for 6 to 8 minutes or until the beans are just tender.) Drain.
- In a large skillet heat margarine or butter; add beans and pepper. Cook and stir, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Stir in beer, onion, thyme, and salt; remove from heat. Makes 4 side-dish servings.
