  • 2 bell peppers, different colours, thinly sliced

  • 1 tomato, chopped

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, or 375 g sirloin steak

  • vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa

  • 2 tsp chili powder

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves

  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Prepare peppers, tomato and onion. Slice chicken into thin strips. Lightly oil a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. When hot, add chicken and stir-fry until lightly golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Then push to edges of pan.

  • Reduce heat to medium. Add peppers, tomato, onion and salsa. Sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, oregano and salt. Pan will be full, but veggies will wilt as they cook. Stir often, uncovered, until onion is softened and chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Terrific with black beans and rice or with tortillas.
