I've never tried it before and the recipes online seem to vary a good bit.
Anyone have a favorite method?
Set an oven rack 4 inches from the broiler element and turn on the broiler. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and place them on a foil lined baking sheet with the cut sides down--you can remove the seeds first or afterwards. Broil until the skins are black and blistered. Transfer them to a bowl (with tongs) while still hot and cover the bowl with a plate. Leave until cool enough to handle. Pull off the skins and scrape out the seeds (rinse your hands as you go if necessary--try not to rinse the peppers so you don't lose flavor.) The peppers will steam in the bowl and make removing the skins easier.
Thank so much! That sounds perfect :)
