Ingredients

  • 8 large chili peppers (bell peppers, poblano peppers, or any type of pepper)

Instructions

  • To roast the  peppers over an open flame, turn a gas flame to HIGH. Set the peppers directly over the flame. Turn the peppers occasionally with tongs until all sides are blackened and blistered. Do not let them burn or turn white
  • To roast the peppers in the oven, preheat oven to 400 degrees or set it to broil. Set the peppers onto a baking sheet (aluminum foil will make for easy cleanup), and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the skins are blackened and blistered, turning occasionally to evenly roast the peppers.
  • To roast the peppers in the oven broiler, set your oven to broil. Set the peppers onto a baking sheet (aluminum foil will make for easy cleanup), skin sides up, and broil for 5-10 minutes, until the skins are blackened and blistered, turning every few minutes to evenly roast the peppers.
  • To roast the peppers on the grill, produce a HIGH FLAME on your grill. Place the chili pepper directly onto the lightly oiled grates. Allow skin to blacken and bubble up. It will do so in about 2-3 minutes. Flip the chili pepper and blacken both sides to evenly roast the peppers.
  • Allow the peppers to cool enough to handle. Transfer them to a bowl and cover them with plastic or a paper towel, or place them into baggies or paper bags to let the skins steam and loosen.
  • If using for stuffing, carefully peel away or rub off and discard the charred skins. Otherwise, simply peel, stem and seed, then chop and use as needed.
