Today I’m sharing a recipe. Hooray recipes!

My very favorite side dishes are the ones that I can prep and stick in a pot or a pan then forget about for 45 minutes while I prepare the main dish. Bonus meal idea: side dishes AND main dishes that I can prep and forget. Why haven’t more of those been invented?

But I digress.

Fried peppers and onions are one of my favorite prep and forget side dishes because they take very little effort but provide a tasty little addition to pretty much any type of meal. I often serve this with tacos, but it also goes really well with Spanish omelet too.
