How to Roast a Pepper

Posted by on Feb 17, 2014 | Comments Off on How to Roast a Pepper

For this demonstration, I’m using poblano peppers for my chiles rellenos casserole, but of course, this method can be used with any type of pepper.

_____________________________________________________________________

1.  Preheat your broiler to high.

2.  Cut your peppers in half and remove the stems, seeds and pith (white parts).

3.  Place the pepper halves skin side up on a parchment covered cookie sheet.

4.  Roast peppers until they’re quite charred — roughly 5 – 10 minutes (be sure the oven rack is close to the top of the oven — directly under the broiler — and check the peppers frequently after the 5 minute mark).

5.  Remove tray from oven, turn peppers, return tray to oven and roast for about 5 minutes longer.

6.  Remove tray from oven and set aside to cool.

7.  Once peppers are cool enough to handle, simply peel off the skin with your fingers (once cooled, the skin will become baggy and this will be easy to do).
