If you ask my kids about their favorite fast food restaurant, they will all tell you CHIPOTLE! And part of what makes it so good are the fresh and flavorful ingredients. What's better than sweet caramelized peppers and onions, with an amazing smoky charred flavor? These are just like the pepper and onions you get at your favorite Chipotle Mexican Grill - only better!
And whether you like veggie fajita salads, steak burrito bowls, or a fully loaded burrito, they all have one thing in common - grilled peppers and onions! And to get that perfectly charred flavor with no grill, all you need is super high heat, a shorter cooking time, and uncovered food. The high heat chars the food surface; the shorter cooking time just comes naturally because the food cooks faster over high heat. And most importantly? Don't cover the food while it cooks. The onions and peppers release moisture in the form of steam when cooking, so if the vegies are covered, you'll end up with soft steamed vegies. Stir with a wooden spoon frequently to keep things cooking evenly. And as they char, they turn a delicious golden brown and have the most wonderful caramelized flavor! Tender and sweet - just the way we love them!
Five simple ingredients and fifteen minutes...that's all you need to create this at home! Perfect not only on tacos and burritos, but pretty darn good piled high on a hot burger or tender steak from the grill. If you have a grill basket, you can also make these right on your grill! Don't you just love it when all the hot cooking is done outside?
We make this like crazy when the fresh Vidalia onions arrive in the spring, but they work just as well with red onions. Add some sweet green bell peppers, olive oil, FRESH oregano and a sprinkle of salt, and you're good to go!
