Love roasted peppers? Me too! I also love that roasting peppers is so easy.  I know many of us roast red peppers, but you can actually roast just about any pepper! You can roast bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, serrano peppers, poblano peppers – just about any pepper you can think of! Actually, roasted vegetables are my favorite way to eat vegetables…the kids too!

Why roast peppers? Simple, the roasting deepens their flavors.  Which makes them extra delicious in recipes! Bell peppers are in season here in Florida November – May, so that’s the perfect time to stock up and make some roasted bell peppers.

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.
