  • 1 tablespoon sweet butter
  • 2 medium red onions, chopped into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 large red bell peppers, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 large yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/4-inch dice

Directions

Preheat the grill or broiler.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook over high heat for 4 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic, cook for 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes. Simmer 5 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and season to taste.
