A rich Green Bell Pepper stew. Very warming on a cold day. It comes from Hungary and is a typical peasant meal.

My Hungarian grandmother used to make this all the time. (although she made it with regular pork sausage instead of chorizo and added paparika as well) She used to make huge batches and can the leftovers. We ate a lot of it during the winter and fall when we helped harvest the garden for her.
