High in nutrients, both potatoes and red bell peppers provide wonderful minerals and vitamins including carotene and lycopene to help fight disease. 

This recipe is easy to adjust the portions needed for each family.  Here, we have made it for a large crowd.  But an easy way to figure out how much you may need for a side dish is to use (or count) one large potato and one red bell pepper per person. 

That should be sufficient if you are planning to serve this as a side dish for gatherings.
