  • Microwave bacon until almost cooked. Cut into large pieces.
  • Add green beans to a large pot. Cover with chicken broth.
  • Add bacon and Goya seasoning packet (adding two packets will give you more ham flavor).

You can substitute the fresh green beans for canned. Use (2) 14.5 oz cans and reduce cooking time by half.
