- Transfer peppers and chile to a paper bag. Close bag. Let stand 15 minutes or until peppers are cool enough to handle.
- Peel off blackened skin. Remove tops, ribs and seeds.
Under The Broiler
- Preheat broiler.
- Halve and core the peppers. Remove the tops, ribs and seeds.
- Place the pepper halves on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Broil 5 to 7 minutes or until the skin has blistered and blackened over the entire surface.
