In El Salvador, tomatada is eaten often. It can be served at any time of the day, and it goes well with beans, eggs, potatoes, anything really. I eat it very often too. We add veggie dogs chopped up because we are always looking for ways (delicious ways!) to increase our protein intake. You can add regular hot dog wieners if you are not vegetarian, or you can just make it without.

You will need three main ingredients only: Tomatoes, onion, and green bell pepper. Depending on the size of the tomatoes, you could use anywhere from three to six or seven, half an onion, and half a green bell pepper. Chop everything up and then heat some olive oil in a shallow pan, add the onion and pepper first, then add the tomatoes and the chopped hot dog if you are using it. Add some salt and a little bit of dried oregano. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for about 15 minutes, until everything is soft and the tomatoes have disintegrated completely. Enjoy with rice, and tortillas or bread, and anything else you'd like!
