Sautee the onions with the butter and olive oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add the green peppers with the seeds along with the tomatoes, potatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

This dish is wonderful! I didn't think it would taste so good and it was really easy to make too. I'll definitely be trying some of your other recipes as well. Thanks.

I am going to try this recipe for the holidays. Would it be ok to add red pepper paste?

This recipe has its own original ingredients. So if you ask me I wouldn't touch it but it is up to you:)
