  4. In the same skillet add the sliced onions and garlic.  Cook while stirring 1-2 minutes; season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper and then add the bell pepper slices cooking another 2 minutes.  Add 1 tbsp water and the reserved meat and any juices back to the pan.  Heat until warmed through; 1 minute.  Plate and serve topped with the guacamole.
