  • 1 sliced green bell pepper
  • 1 sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 sliced orange or yellow bell pepper
  • 2 peeled and sliced red onions
  • 3 chopped garlic cloves
  • 4 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 8 small tortillas of your choice


  1. Heat oil in large fry-pan, adding all the spices, including the garlic.
  2. Add all the sliced bell peppers and heat for 5-10 minutes until they are softened.
  3. After bell peppers are soft, add all the onions and cook to desired taste and texture. Approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Before serving, turn the heat up to almost high and allow veggies to blacken on one side. This will intensify the flavor.
  5. Before moving into a serving dish, toss with cilantro for one minute.
  6. Keeping pan hot, heat up the corn or flour tortillas one minute each on both sides.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
