Hurrah for easy one-pan meals! I made this for the first time last week when I really didn’t feel like cooking. I kind of just threw everything into the skillet and hoped for the best.

At least, I don’t anyway. The Anaheim chile peppers were also looking exceptionally good that day, so I grabbed a couple of those as well. Peppers are one thing that I have a hard time passing up when they look and smell SO good. […]
