chipotle grilled peppers and onions

Healthy caramelized peppers and onions with an amazing smoky char flavor – just like the pepper and onions you get on your favorite  Mexican Grill ! I love the idea of  making yummy vegetables for my family that taste like they came from a restaurant!  We all love the smokey, simple flavor of  grilled vegetables. My favorite part about this side dish that it only requires 5 ingredients: red onion, green bell pepper, olive oil, fresh oregano, and salt…. and it takes about 15 minutes from prep to table.  Depending on your preferences – you can cut the peppers and onions as thin or as thick as you like. Serve the vegetables as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak, on a salad or rice bowl like Chipotle does, as a topping for tacos or nachos… possibilities are really endless!

Ingredients (serves 4)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large green pepper, stemmed, cored, and sliced
  • 2 medium red onions, sliced
  • 1/2 Tablespoons fresh oregano, finely chopped (1/2 teaspoons dried oregano works too.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Over medium-high heat, add the oil, peppers, onions, oregano, and salt to a large skillet and stir to combine, until the vegetables are even coated with oil and oregano.
Cook until charred and slightly softened but still tender-crisp, about 7 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve.
