The flavors in this dish are amazingly simple but rich - bacon and onions. Adding red pepper gives it that additional kick that'll make you wonder how many times a week you can make collard greens with dinner!

  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  4. Add collard greens, and fry until they start to wilt.
  5. Pour in chicken broth, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
