In medium saucepan or small frying pan, melt butter. Add onion, potato and pepper. Sauté over medium heat until potatoes are fork tender.
Add bacon, garlic, and Ranch Mix. Stir in well.
Fold in green beans and heat through, simmering, stirring gently and occasionally so that you don’t wreck them.
Add pepper to taste. Add salt only if desired. *Ranch Mixes are salty.
