Green Beans with Peanuts and Chile de Arbol
Rate this recipe
- 1 pound green beans or Chinese long beans ends removed and diagonally cut into about 2-inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil
- 1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
- 4 garlic cloves minced or pressed
- 3 Chiles de Arbol stemmed and thinly sliced
- 4 to 6 scallions thinly sliced, light green and white parts only
- Bring salted water to a boil, then add the sliced green beans and cook uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes until al dente. Strain beans and set aside.
- Combine the soy sauce, chicken broth, sugar and salt and mix well.
- Heat the peanut oil over high heat in a large heavy skillet until hot but not smoking. Add the peanuts and fry, stirring constantly, for about 20 seconds (careful, they brown faster than it seems!). Add the garlic, stir, add the chiles de árbol, stir, add the scallions and stir.
- Add the green beans to skillet and mix to combine all the ingredients, and finally pour in soy sauce mixture. Let it all cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately or turn off the heat and cover to keep warm.

These are amazing. I served these green beans as part of Christmas dinner and it was a big hit – even with my husband who “doesn’t like green beans”. He had seconds. The combo of chiles, garlic, soy sauce, and peanuts is great.
Haha! Even the green beans hater loved them, yay, this really made me so happy Jennifer, thanks for sharing!
I made this for this Thanksgiving.
And the family loved 🥰 it
I also watch your TV shows. You are so patient teaching each step as you cook.
I love 💕 your shows
Muchas gracias Julieta, so glad you are having fun 😉
Pati, I just love your show, I love your passion for food and your efforts to pass on your culture by traveling to the source. I truly enjoy the show, is so much more than cooking a recipe. Thank you 🤗
Aw thank you so much!
Plan on making this dish for Thanksgiving! Can I make one day in advance & reheat?
It is really best if made then and there….
I have been thinking about this recipe since I saw you make it on your show. So tonight I made it…AMAZING!!! This is so delicious I have to share it with everyone I know.
I threw in some fresh asparagus with the beans, and I am so happy with the results.
I am not much of a t.v. watcher, but I never miss your show. I love it!
Thanks for sharing your passion for good food
Thank you for tuning in, Tracey! And I have to say, the addition of asparagus sounds wonderful.
Pati, my daughter, for her Culinary Arts class, made this for our family. In Montana, we only have Chile de Arbol dried. It was really good and full of flavor. I love your show and thank you for sharing your Mexican recipes!
Thank you for your message, Paula! I’m so happy your daughter picked this recipe to make!! I use dried chile de arbol when I make it, too.
