  • Dice potatoes, onions and peppers into small uniform pieces so that they will cook at about the same time and get even browning.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Add the onions and potatoes.
  • Stir to coat with oil and then season with salt and pepper. Give one more good stir.
  • The key to crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside is to let the potatoes sit on the skillet spread out without stirring too much.
  • Spread potatoes across the skillet and let them sit and crisp for 5 minutes without touching. Check the potatoes to make sure they aren’t burning and adjust the heat if needed. You want to heat at a nice medium. After 5 or so minutes, turn the potatoes and spread them out again. You want the potatoes to get brown and crispy on the sides.
  • Once the potatoes are browned, add the peppers and stir to combine. Continue cooking, stirring every few minutes for another 5-10 minutes. Taste and season with salt, pepper and rosemary. Serve hot.
