3. Add the peppers and onions to cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are soft but still crisp. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overcook the vegetables and make them soggy.
4. Season with salt and mix. Set the veggies aside.

5. To the same skillet add remaining oil. Put the garlic to cook for a couple of minutes.
