Last week King Soopers had every color of bell pepper on sale for .99 cents. I bought two of every single one and a bunch of yeller onions. Then I got home, sliced everything up and threw the onions in to caramelize.
I then got distracted by something down the hall and 10 minutes later the smell of scalding onions sent me skittering back to the kitchen. The only way to save the stuck onions was apparent… I reached for the red wine and in it went. This is called ‘deglazing’ which is a fancy word for “I got something stuck to the pan but I’m gonna pretend like it was on purpose.”
Next in went the bell peppers, a lot of cumin, some chili powder and red pepper. Mmmm I love fajitas. You can sear a steak in 5 minutes, warm some tortillas and go to town. You can forget about something cooking, call it “caramelized” and nobody’s the wiser. Fajitas are like the best friend we all need, low maintenance, still ok when you forget about them and there when you need them most. So go grab some veggies and get to cookin!
