Franks Red Hot Stir Fry

I make this stir-fry alot at home. No, not because it is simple. No, not because it is cheap. No, not because all the ingredients work so well together that it leaves you amazed and wanting more.
But because of the Franks Red Hot Hot Sauce.
Buy me a gallon of Franks and I will love you forever.
In fact, my mother did just that.
Hence why I love her so much.
Of course, even though the hot sauce is best part of the whole recipe, there are plenty of other reasons why this recipe is so good. So it was still good, even when I had to make a batch minus the hot sauce for Sarah.
She is my sister. I love her. Even though she does not like hot sauce.
Whew. That was hard.

But, I've moved on. Once you have too, chop up 1 onion, three bell peppers (colors of your liking), and 1 tomato (seeded and diced).
Heat oil in pan over medium heat and add onions, peppers, and butter (2 Tbsp) . Let simmer till onions are translucent.
While this is cooking up and your kitchen is filling with the amazing scent of cooking peppers and onions, pull yourself out of the trance, and cook rice according to package instructions (about 1/2 cup per person.)

So yummy.

This is what it will look like pre-hot sauce. Notice the vegetarian chicken thrown in. Of course for the meat eaters, feel free to use real chicken. If you absolutely need to. Which you don't.
Trust me.
Then pour over the hot sauce. Now, you are wondering, well how much hot sauce do I use?
I would tell you.
If I could.
But I'm afraid I get so lost in the hot sauce step, I forget to measure.
If I had to guess, I would say 1/2 cup.
But, the average person might want a lil less than that.
I like to smother the onions and peppers in a Franks Red Hot bath.
They appreciate it.

After adding the chicken and hot sauce over the top of the peppers and onions, stir and cover, reducing heat and stirring occasionally.

*if you are not a sane person and do not want to use hot sauce, cook the same way without adding the Hot Sauce, keep on medium and covered till onions are translucent then remove from heat.

When The hot sauce has reduced down slightly, remove from heat. Serve over rice.

And if you are making a double batch because you too are crazy, you will end up with these two plates of amazing food
(the one with hot sauce of course, slightly more amazing...just kidding...no I'm not)
If not, then you have one huge plate of this meal.
And you are sane.
And Enjoy.
