I like to "spice up" my meat dishes with peppers, and this Basque Piperade—adapted from a Spanish recipe—is a family favorite. The bright red and green peppers look especially good with meats like pork, chicken or seafood...but I use the sauce to season beef when I cook that, too.

"O.M.G this is SO good! I make this a lot but I use 4 green bell peppers because the green is cheaper than the red bell peppers. I also use 2 cans of stewed tomatoes instead of the tomatoes called for in this receipe. I have made this more than any other T.O.H receipe that I've collected over the years. I'm so glad I first tried this over more than 15 years ago. I can't believe that there isn't more reviews for this AWSOME dish! It's always been my "Go to receipe" when ever I want to make something that's really good. I will always make this for my family as well as for myself..lol. It's in my TOP 5 ALL TIME FAVORITES!! Please try this. I'm wanting to see how many of you T.O.H lovers will Love this! I always call this my "Pork and Peppers" I think people see the Piperade word/part of this receipe and say "What's that?" It's just a fancy word for "Pork and Peppers" You really got to TRY THIS ONE!!!"
