  • Going to try this. Ive been wondering how to make it without a grill - 2/3/14

  • Some body ask for how long in a 400 f oven.
    I tried this and after 35 minutes id was starting to bubble up but not turn black.
    It was well cooked by then - 1/19/14

  • it was good - 12/30/13

  • just as Micheal said I'm amazed that any body can earn $8227 in 4 weeks on the internet. read the article... www.BAR29.com - 9/6/13

  • I hope you can answer this question. Is it okay, health wise, to eat the outer skin that you discarded in the video? We eat it and it's the most delicious part in my opinion. - 7/30/13

  • I too wonder how to make these in bulk and what to do to safely store them. - 7/27/13

  • Very good video. - 6/12/13

  • Yummy - 5/11/13

  • Excellent vid (I've watched it 3x's) but there's no place to SAVE it in my favs so I emailed it to myself. You are such a gr8 teacher to learn from and this ***is*** Teacher Appreciation Week. You certainly ***fit*** my interpretation of what/how a ***teacher*** should be! THANK YOU for all you do!! - 5/8/13

  • I didn't know how to roast peppers before, so I always buy mine bottled. Thanks for the tip. Now I can definitely make my own roasted peppers. It's easy and healthy, too. - 3/28/13

  • LOOKS VERY GOOD. I was wondering how to do this the right way and keep their flavor. - 3/11/13

  • If you find the "Anaheim" or "California" peppers and roast them as has been shown, the slices or "rajas" as we call them are delicios with all kinds of meals. We make delicious tameles of slices of roasted pepper with cheese (tamales de rajas con queso) - 2/20/13

  • Don't know why I never thought of doing this before. Probably because I didn't know how to roast them right. Off to the grocers today. Thanks for the lesson. - 2/16/13

  • Interesting... - 2/2/13

  • Ohh Yummy looks good! One question you said you can put it in the oven @400 but for how long 5 10 minutes?
    Please let me know
    Thanks - 1/3/13

  • By lightly rubbing the skin with a bit of olive oil, the roasted chiles can be frozen in bulk. The oil on the skin lets the frozen parcel be separated with ease. - 11/30/12

  • I wonder if this can be done in bulk and frozen in parcels. Anybody know?

  • This recipe is great! I have been doing this for some time and they are great additions to turkey wraps as well. However, I add some fresh garlic, parsley and a little EVOO and keep it in the fridge in a glass container, so I always have some on hand and ready to eat. Enjoy!!! - 5/19/10

  • Great tip now I can roast peppers instead of buying them - 5/19/10

  • I tried the oven,took over 40Min. just to turn brown, so I just took it out,it like flop over dead.Had to laugh. but will try with a grill....did have fun.and learned something - 12/11/09

  • We have a little propane grill. I stick the peppers on a fork and turn them while holding over the flame. But putting them in the oven a 400 seems much easier. Thank you. - 11/14/09

  • I'm making them tonight!!! - 10/26/09

  • Good video, I wondered about the peeling, thanks. - 10/24/09

  • the quality of the image and sound on my connection was very poor. I could not make out what the chef was saying even at maximum volume and would have preferred a written article to read at my leisure. - 10/24/09

  • How ironic! I made a taboulli salad tonight with roasted red and yellow peppers. I put them in a "George Foreman"-type grill, then spent way too long peeling them. This was GREAT! Wish I had seen this before cooking tonight. - 10/23/09
