- In a deep skillet or sauté pan, sauté onions and peppers together in 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste and stir thoroughly. Allow the paste to caramelize slightly.
- Add the diced tomatoes and spices and stir well. Reduce heat to medium low and allow mixture to simmer to marry flavors and heat through.
