There are ingredients in every culture that would be added in almost every recipe. One of those ingredients for Tanzanians is, sweet peppers, which in Swahili is pilipili hoho. Pilipili hoho add a good flavor in any stew and we Tanzanians love sweet peppers in our stews.
I do like to stir fry sweet peppers. This is fast for a busy mother. Use this recipe as a side dish with anything. The best part of this recipes is; no measuring!
Use equal amounts of Green, Red and yellow / golden peppers. For us who live in America, red and yellow peppers can be a bit expensive sometimes, so just use only green peppers.
