Oven Roasted Green Beans with Rojo Chimichurri

Oven Roasted green beans with rojo chimichurri is such an amazing way to make green beans. To me, I find green beans to be quite bland and uninteresting but not with this recipe.  It is basically roasted green beans with garlic and so many other delicious flavors.

Adding a Rojo chimichurri sauce to the green beans and then roasting them in the oven completely changes how I feel about green beans. It has me loving green beans for the first time in a long time.

If you are not familiar with rojo chimichurri, it is a close cousin to the green chimichurri sauce that everyone loves. It has some tomato added to the sauce and a few other little additions that the green chimichurri does not have.

This recipe for oven roasted green beans came from my laziness of not wanting to create another spice blend for my green beans on a day that I already made this delicious chimichurri sauce.
