I double or even triple paper toweling and completely dampen it. Then place the roasted pepper of any kind inside that by folding it over with the chile(s) inside. Then that goes into a plastic bag of any kind and gets closed. This does the steaming without the chile touching the plastic. Can use a recycled bag from the produce department you have brought home and rinsed out.

This is my first post, but I roast a lot of peppers because I love them so much and had a few thoughts -- I always use a small paper bag instead of plastic (I try to avoid using plastic wherever possible). When I'm ready to peel, I tear open the bag to have a flat surface to work on like Amanda and Merrill do with the plastic. It works the same way, just a little big "greener." Also, kitchen scissors work wonders at cutting up the peppers -- I trim around the stem end, pull that out, with most of the seeds, then cut the peppers into the size slices I want. Give it a try!
Love this site, by the way. It's so much fun. And I'm amazed by the creativity of this community of home cooks. Best, Carol

I always fill a small bowl of water and put it by my side when I peel roasted peppers to dip my fingers in. It works great.

How could it not be good with sherry vinegar in it? I think that is one of my favorite vinegars. Looking forward to trying this - it sounds like it would be yummy with some grilled pork chops.
