Tips and Tricks for the best peppers and onions

If the peppers and onions are starting to burn, turn down the heat on your stovetop just a little and adjust from there. We want caramelized peppers and onions, not burned peppers and onions.

If you’re not using a non-stick skillet, you may need to add in a little more olive oil. The veggies shouldn’t really stick to the bottom of the skillet, so add in more olive oil if needed.

Make sure to add in the minced garlic at the end so it doesn’t burn. If you add it in the beginning with all the seasonings, it’ll burn and that’s no bueno!
