  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen crinkle-cut French fries
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 16 wedges
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper or poblano pepper or 2 medium banana or Anaheim peppers, cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
