Green Pepper Saute

 Green Pepper Saute
I created this recipe one summer when I had an abundance of green peppers in my garden. This spicy recipe is a great companion for any meat dish. It's also delicious served over rice. When I take it to potlucks, many people want the recipe.—Joyce Turley, Slaughters, Kentucky
