Recipe Notes

Make sure to puncture the peppers or else you will hear them popping in the oven.


The oven does not have to reach 500F. Once you're ready you can put the peppers under the broiler immediately. Make sure to watch them so they don't burn!


Alternatively to the broiler, you car char the peppers in a skillet on a stove top or on a very hot grill.
