Wash and dry peppers. Place whole peppers into a glass baking dish. Drizzle with small amount of olive oil, making sure to coat all sides. Roast in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the skins have a “blistered” appearance. This can also be achieved by grilling if you prefer. Once the peppers are finished roasting in the oven, remove them and allow them to cool on the stove/counter and cover them with plastic wrap. This creates condensation and further separation of the skin which makes for easier removal.
Hint: Wear nitrile gloves when peeling and seeding any hot peppers. And make sure to wash your hands with cool water and soap before touching your face…eyes…anything. But if you forget this tip, you will only make the mistake once. Ouch!
