INGREDIENTS

Turn the heat to medium & pull out a large saucepan. Once the pot is hot,melt the margarine and toss in the chopped onion and bell pepper.

**I put my onion and bell pepper in my food processor and pulsed it until chopped but not smushed.

I use a large can of condensed cream of mushroom( which was 1lb and 10oz.) but you can use  2 1/2 cans that are this size!
