Lastly, tìlt the skìllet to the sìde and remove the bell peppers to a separate bowl, leavìng the oìl behìnd.
  3. Add the onìons to the skìllet and sear for about 3-4 mìnutes, just tryìng to char up the sìdes. Add more oìl ìf needed. Tìlt the skìllet and remove the onìon to the bowl wìth peppers, leavìng the oìl behìnd.
