Step 1

Heat 1 tsp. oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pumpkin seeds. Cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; set aside.

Step 2

Heat remaining oil in same skillet. Add green beans and Sazonador Total; cook until heated through and crisp tender, 5–7 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and reserved pumpkin seeds. Transfer to serving platter. Serve warm. 

Tip by La Cocina Goya

Check the freezer aisle

Frozen vegetables are quick and easy to use and are just as nutritious as fresh veggies. Try adding frozen corn, peas, green beans, spinach or sugar snap peas to some of your favorite dishes, or eat as a side dish.
