Lecso

I remember making this dish for the 1st time, while in Hungary, back in 2007. It was to help my husband’s late grandparents. What a fun day on the kitchen. His grandparents were superb, love them so much, miss them so much 🙂

Too bad, although I have the pictures compiled as a video up on Youtube, I no longer have the original pictures 🙁 Memories live on, I know, but I wish at least I have pictures for that day 🙂

Anyhoo. Back to this dish! hahah

A little time consuming but end result is OH MY GAWD 😛

My 10 mo loves this better than my 4 yo lol

1 big onion, chopped
1 bag (about 8) colorful bell peppers, sliced
1 bag (6-8) tomatoes, soaked in hot water for 3 mins, skinned

Add in bell pepper, cook to soften

Once soften, add in chopped tomatoes, cook to totally soften both pepper and tomatoes, adding water as needed
