 For Meatloaf:  Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add red
 pepper, green pepper, onion and salt; cover and cook over low heat until
 very tender, about 8 minutes.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Heat
 oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
 
 Combine bread and milk in large bowl; let stand 5 minutes to soften.
 Add beef, crumbs, ketchup, egg, hot pepper sauce and sweet red pepper
 mixture; toss gently to coat.  Spoon and pat into prepared loaf pan.
 
 Bake at 350 for 1 hour.  Let stand 15 minutes before serving.  Top each
 serving with a dollop of Sweet Pepper Sauce and serve.
 
 Sweet Pepper Sauce:  Heat 1 tbsp oil in large skillet over medium-high
 heat.  Add the red pepper, green pepper, onion, water and salt; cook,
 stirring occasionally, over medium heat until very tender, about 8
 minutes.  Stir in cider vinegar, brown sugar and mustard seeds; cook
 over medium-high heat until most of the liquid has evaporated and sauce
 is thickened, about 8 minutes.
