Make the Mix Spray cooking spray on grill Spray cooking spray on red pepper and set on grill. Roast pepper on direct heat. Be sure each side chars before turning. This will take at least 20 minutes -This will be very hot on the inside. Let it cool before further processing. While the pepper is roasting- Spray 3 onion slices with cooking spray and set on grill. Turn onion when it begins to brown and remove onion when both sides have lightly browned. While the pepper is roasting- fold a 12" x 8" piece of tin foil to about 4" x 4" (to give it more strength) and using a garlic press, press the 5 cloves onto the foil. Place the garlic over indirect heat and heat until the outsides begin to brown lightly. - Do not burn the garlic. Peel the cooled red pepper remove stem and seeds and cut into a small dice- you will end up with about 1/2 cup. Cut the onion into a small dice- you will end up with about 1/4 cup.
