Bell peppers are used in many different dishes, from grilled fajita platters to cheese steak sandwiches -- and even on top of breakfast dishes like huevos rancheros. Roasted bell peppers are also used to make salsa or guacamole for dips. Roasting is a great way to enhance the bell pepper's natural flavor while adding hints of smokiness to your dish.
Things You'll Need
- Plastic resealable bags
- Gas grill
Turn your grill on to medium-high heat.
Place the bell peppers on the grill approximately an inch apart.
Turn the peppers over until each side has become charred, about 7 to 10 minutes.
Turn off the grill and place the roasted peppers inside of plastic resealable bag. Close the bag and wait for about 15 minutes.
Remove the peppers from the bag. Peel away the charred skin, then cut up each pepper for use in your dish.
Tips & Warnings
- Remember to remove the stems and seeds from each pepper before adding to a dish.
- Do not leave the grill unattended. Bell peppers burn easily if they're not watched.
