Collard Greens with Bacon Recipe from Savory Spice

Ingredients

Directions

Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven (or similar pot) over medium-high heat until just crisp; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add carrots to pot with bacon drippings and cook over medium-high heat for 5 min. Add onions and cook another 5 min., or until carrots and onions soften and begin to brown. Stir in lemon pepper, garlic, crushed red pepper, and vinegar and cook for 1 more min. Add reserved bacon, collard greens, and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 1 hour or until greens are tender.

"A friend of mine gave me a sample of the Peruvian Chile Lime seasoning and now it is over. The quality is so good that I just had to find you guys online. I will be trying a few new spices. I hope to be happily satisfied by the new flavors as well. There is no better way for a business to grow than with word of mouth about great quality of products and service! Sending you love from Arizona, keep up the good work!"
