Alambre is a famous Mexican dish. "Alambre" literally means "wire" in spanish. There is a believing that the name comes behind the skewers used to cook its ingredients but traditional Alambre is not cooked in skewers anymore.

Step 2: Chop Vegetables

Cut peppers and onion into small squares. Do not mix onion with peppers (you can mix peppers between them).

Cook peppers in a covered pot at low temperature with one spoon canola oil. Stir occasionally. Peppers will look cooked once they have changed color and look softer.

Repeat cooking process with onion. You will find out that onion is cooked when it looks pink.
