In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat. Sauté onions for a few minutes, and add ground beef. Cook until all of the meat is browned. Add green peppers, and sauté until the green peppers are cooked through and tender but not soft. Drain any excess oil or fat. Add chipotle-herb sauce, and mix well.
