Yield: 4 servings
Preparation: 15-20 minutes
Cook: approximately 30 minutes

6 large red potatoes (such as Texas Red Bliss), diced, but not peeled
1/2 yellow onion, diced (I used a whole small/medium onion)
1/2 red bell pepper, diced (I used a whole pepper)
2 tablespoons butter (I used about 4)
1 tablespoon paprika
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a large pot of boiling salted water, boil potatoes for approximately 4 minutes, or until barely cooked. Drain well in a colander. In a large well-seasoned cast-iron skillet (I used a regular skillet), saute onion and bell pepper in butter. When they are tender, add potatoes and cook until golden brown. (Potatoes will brown faster if you don’t move them around too much.) Add paprika, season with salt and black pepper, and serve hot.
