Cook's Tip:
Onions have plenty of fiber, vitamin C and may help prevent the growth of tumors. Plus, they’re a great kitchen staple, so stock up. Use them with sauté or roasted vegetables or meats, in soups and more.
When tomatoes are not available or too costly, substitute with tomato puree or tomato ketchup/sauce.
To keep the chilies fresh for a longer time, remove the stems before storing.
