ISO diced vegi leftover ideas

peppers, red oniond and tomatoes. What can I do with them? I have a whole bunch of them and have no idea what to do. It's leftovers from mexican meal we had the other day. They have been seating in refrigerator and if I do not use them today they will begarbage.

One thing please nothing dairy. Only meat or vegetable dishes, if you please.

Thanks in advance.

Saute the veggies in olive oil. Deglaze the pan with some white wine, stir in pats of butter to make a butter wine sauce and toss with cooked pasta.

Sorry, Charlie. I wasn't thinking when I mentioned the butter. Skip the butter and toss with pasta and some more olive oil.

Charlie, since the peppers, onions & tomatoes are left over from a mexican meal (already cooked?) you could:

Add them to a frittata or scrambled eggs, with a side of hash brown potatoes.

Saute ground beef, put the peppers, onions, tomatoes w the beef in a flour tortilla with shredded lettuce and shredded cheddar - top with sour cream, if you like.

Make a pasta dish with olive oil & garlic - then add your peppers, onions & tomatoes - season with pepper flakes, if you like.

How about a pizza? Put the mixture on pizza dough, add cheese, & whatever else you like & bake.

Another tortilla idea - cook (flank) steak, shrimp or chicken, slice thinly; then add your peppers, onions & tomatoes to a tortilla with cheese of choice or serve as a sammich on french/italian bread.

I almost suggested adding the mixture to a quiche, but not if you don't want dairy.

I just made a batch of chili that called for all of these things. Here is the recipe I used.

2 pounds ground beef
1 29-ounce can of tomato sauce
1 29-ounce can of kidney beans
1 29-ounce can of pinto beans
1 diced green pepper
1 diced medium onion
1/2 cup diced mild green chiles
1 to 6 diced jalapeno peppers (if heat desired)
1 29-ounce can diced tomatoes or 3 chopped medium tomatoes
2 teaspoons cumin powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar

1. Brown the beef in skillet or microwave and drain off the fat.
2. Combine all of the ingredients in a crockpot.
3. Cook on low for 3-10 hours.

Or cook on stovetop until done.

Roasted veggie salsa, use for a soup base, us for gazpacho, depending on the size you can top or incorporate into salads, mix with cream cheese, top with chili and cheddar and nuke till warm serve it with crackers...

add some cucumbers and marinate everything in a red wine vinegar type salad dressing and serve cold.

Bravo, GB!

You met Charlie's specs and came up with a perfectly brilliant idea!
