  • 30 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 tsp DarĂ©gal Le+ Taste garlic
  • 160 g Iceland ready to cook diced onions
  • 250 g Iceland quick cook sliced mixed peppers

  • 8 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp American style hot dog mustard

  2. Heat the oil and butter in a non-stick pan over a medium heat.
  3. Add the diced onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Then add the diced peppers and chilli and continue frying for about another 7 minutes (until both softened but not coloured).

  6. Bring to the boil and then simmer under a lid for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve warm (or cold if you wish) with burgers or any barbecued meats.
  8. Keep any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days or freeze the rest.
