Notes

I have read some recipes where people place the peppers in a paper bag or a covered bowl to steam the peppers to help remove the skin, I did not find that necessary, the skins easily came off once the peppers were cool enough to touch.

 

Easy roasted red peppers

Roasted peppers are the perfect to have in your refrigerator at all times, because you can basically use them all the time 😉 You can store the roasted peppers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to about a week. If you store the roasted peppers covered in oil in the refrigerator they will keep for at least 2 weeks. You can freeze roasted peppers if you want them to last even longer.
