  1. Grill the Aurora Long Sweet Peppers until they are evenly charred and slightly softened. Remove from grill and slice into long strips. Set aside and keep warm.

  4. Wipe out the pan slightly if needed then add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the sliced onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium heat until softened, 5-7 minutes.
