Potato & Pepper Stew

This Potato & Pepper Stew is a great way to use either green or red peppers. It makes a fragrant stew that is delicious hot or at room temperature. It freezes well too! The trick is to cook the onions and the peppers slowly until they are slightly caramelized and sweet. Serve it as a side with grilled chicken, or just eat it on it’s own with a chunk of good bread and a sharp green salad. For a different savory breakfast, break eggs on top of it and bake it in the oven until the eggs are set!
