Sauté the Onion, Butter, and Jalapeno

In a medium skillet, you will need to sauté the 2 Tbs butter with ½ onion diced (Yellow or red work the best. If you want a stronger onion flavor use the red onion.) and 1/2 jalapeno diced (if you do not like a lot of spice then you can decrease the amount of jalapeno you add or even leave out the jalapeno). Cook until the pepper and onion become tender. This should be about 10 minutes.
