  • Add peppers, salt then mix and cook while occasionally mixing until the peppers have soften up a bit.
  • Add tomatoes and mix again. Add garlic, ground paprika and cook until the peppers are soft but still hold their shape and most of the juices have evaporated.
  • There should be some juice left because as the dish cools down, it will thicken.
