  • 1 lb Red Potatoes
  • 1/2 White Onion Chopped
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 1 Jalapeno Minced
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste


  1. Heat the pan on a medium-high heat with both the butter and oil. Be careful not to burn the butter and oil by placing the pan too close to the fire.

  2. Slice the red potatoes into equally sized slices and add to the pan once butter has melted.

  3. Cover the potatoes and cook for about 5-7 minutes while stirring occasionally to keep the potatoes from burning. After 5-7 minutes, add the onions, bell peppers, and jalapenos and continue to cook while covered.

  4. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove pan from heat and serve!
