    5 large Peppers, sweet, red
    5 large Green Peppers
    Garlic, 40 cloves or 2 heads
    2 large Onions, sweet or normal
    .5 cup Olive Oil
    20 Red Ripe Tomatoes, Plum is best
    1 tbsp Cumin seed or more if you like
    1 tbsp Coriander seed, or more
    Salt, 3 tbsp or to taste
    Pepper, black, 1 tbsp or to taste


Using a broiler, grill, or flames of gas burner blaken the skins on all the peppers and tomatos. Some people then put them in sealed palstic bags to make it easier to get the skins off. No matter, the next step is to get the skins off. Watch it as the tomatos are really hot. Plums work the best as they have more meat so to speak. Using a processor or with mortor and pestal like gizmo crush the roasted tomatos and peppers until they are roughly mushed. Meanwhile on the grill or in the oven bake or grill the onion and garlic until soft. I often wrap them in foil. Please do understand that I use a lot of garlic other folks not so much, so use as much or little as you like. I always use two to three heads. When the garlic and onion are done, mush them just like you did the peppers and tomatos and then mix in with the tomatos. Add the olive oil and the spices and mix more. This can be served hot or cold. Often served with hard boiled egg sliced in half which can make a good lunch. Served on French bread or scooping device of choice. French bread is traditional.
