Spanish Green Beans

Another favorite from the Pioneer Woman. Definitely a unique take on green beans. Not sure why they're called "Spanish" though? Plus, they're considered healthy...right?

4 cans whole green beans (or 1-2 lbs. fresh)
2 cans whole tomatoes
1 medium onion
5 slices bacon
cayenne pepper

Slice bacon into short strips. Put large sauce pan/dutch oven on med-low and throw in bacon. Cook until bacon turns brown. Dice onion. Drain off a bit of the fat and add the onion. Cook until they all turn a nice color (don't let bacon get crisp). Drain beans and throw them into the pan. Add whole tomatoes with their juices. Stir. Cover and reduce heat to low and cook for 45 minutes. Add a bit of cayenne pepper.
