Best fertilizer for bush beans?

I planted bush beans this year in the section of the garden that had corn last year. And then that unpredicted cold spell hit and I thought for sure I was going to gave to replant. Well, hey, they came up! BUT they are looking kind of starved, with some yellow tint to the leaves. Should I be looking for a bean-specific fertilizer or would an all-purpose such as Miracle-Gro work just as well?

Any fertilizer will help, but I like something mild with a bit of nitrogen, such as liquid fish emulsion. It will Green them right up.
