    1. 1
      Sauté onions in olive oil. Add paprika and then add the rest of the ingredients.
    2. 2
      Slice tomatoes and peppers into cubes and when onions are translucent add them to the pan. Let cook on low heat for about 1/2 hour; add salt and pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      That is the basic recipe -- my mother always canned several jars and then used it with eggs scrambled in the sauce, or added potatoes or Nokedli Hungarian homemade noodles). You can also add Kolbaz or any kind of sausage or bacon you like.
