Taco Night Leftovers: Sweet Peppers and Potatoes

It's late, you have zero clue on what to make for dinner so you check out the fridge. Time to MacGuyver!

I usually do a taco night once a week. It's delicious and easy. My husband is awesome at browning the beef while I caramelize onions and peppers. 

Since I always have leftovers it's easy to throw something together!

Caramelized Onions and Sweet Baby Peppers:

Coarsely dice onions.

Deseed the sweet baby peppers

Place both in a cast iron skillet on medium heat with about a tablespoon of olive oil.

Heat and stir for about 20 minutes.  Onions and peppers should be soft and slightly brown.  They should be coated with their natural sugars released by the cooking process.

Add to anything!
