For this recipe, you will need:

- 1 russet potato

- 2 bell peppers

- 1 tomato

- Sliced chili pepper, to taste

- 2 tbsp. olive oil

- Salt

Peel, halve and slice the potato into 1/4-inch wedges. Slice the bell peppers into strips and chop the tomato into approximately 1-inch chunks.

In a medium skillet (non-stick is helpful with the starchy potatoes), bring the olive oil up to medium/high temp on the stovetop. Add the bell peppers and sliced chili pepper. Sautèe, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Add the potato wedges and continue to sautèe for 15 minutes, then stir in the chopped tomato. Salt to taste. Cook for a further 2-5 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown on the surface and tender on the inside.

Allow to cool, as this dish is best served cold or slightly warm.

Buon appetito!
