Spicy Sautéed Peppers & Onions

Ah, peppers and onions... I seriously can’t think of a more perfect veggie duo. (Seriously - if you can think of one, let me know!!)

This is one of my favourite veggie recipes to whip together whenever I want to add a spicy, Mexican-inspired kick to my meals. It’s perfect in fajitas, tacos (or taco bowls!) or even in a flavourful breakfast skillet, and makes the perfect addition to any meal prep. (Like my Fiesta Chicken Summer Meal Prep!)
