This is one of our family's favorites.  When I noticed the Nacho challenge I just had to enter.  It is very messy, usually eaten with a fork at our house hehehe.

Heat the oil in a sauté pan or Wok over medium heat.

Add the onion and green bell pepper, tossing to coat, and stir occasionally allowing vegetables to sweat.  

Although a little more time consuming, this creates a more even heat and texture. 

They're done when tender and begin to color.

Drool...I know what I'm making tonight.
