Kitchen Tip:

*How to Roast a Pepper: If using a gas stove, place pepper directly on high flame, turning occasionally (this can also be done over a high heat grill). The pepper will immediately start to pop, blister, and char. When all sides are charred completely, turn off heat and carefully use tongs to place pepper in a heatproof bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap & using a knife or fork, add a couple of air holes in the plastic wrap. This captures the steam & lets it escape slowly to help loosen the skin from the pepper. When the pepper is cool after 10 to 15 min, clean off all the charred skin.
