  1. Place the bacon in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat and cook until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the bacon and all but 2 to 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease.
  2. Add the onion and jalapeño and cook for a minute or two, then add the green beans. Cook until the green beans are bright green, an additional minute. Add the chicken stock, garlic powder and a good pinch of both salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and lightly cover, allowing the some of the steam to escape. Cook until the liquid is evaporated and the beans are starting to soften, but still have a bite, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Transfer the beans to a serving vessel. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the top of the beans, along with the fried onions.
