Jillian and I were in a cooking mood today and decided to make chicken rogan josh. At one point the recipe called for roasted bell peppers and to get them from a jar. Well, we had bell peppers in our fridge and we had olive oil so I decided to show Jill how easy (and ridiculously good smelling) roasting your own peppers can be. Here are the steps:

  1. Get peppers
  2. Preheat your ovens broiler
  3. Brush each pepper with olive oil. Make sure you get each and every crack
  4. Put the peppers on a baking sheet
  5. Place the sheet with the peppers into the oven
  6. When the peppers start turning black on top, turn them over
  7. When the second side of the peppers start turning black, remove them from the oven
  8. Throw the peppers into a bowl and quickly cover the bowl air tight with plastic wrap. The steam trapped inside will held loosen all the skin on the peppers

  9. Once the peppers are cooled down and you’re able to touch them (15 minutes maybe), pull off the stems. The stems, and most of the seeds, should easily come out
  10. Hold the pepper down on a flat surface and start peeling. The skin should come off pretty easy
  11. Once the skin is removed, cut open the pepper and brush off any remaining seeds and pulp
  12. Enjoy the roasted peppers as you please
