Que-Tips: Roasting Peppers

You know how there are ways to make an everyday item a little more…exciting?  Crunchy peanut butter does that for me.  I like peanut butter, but throw crunchy on there and I get excited.  We have 4 kids that like creamy, so crunchy peanut butter doesn’t make many appearances in my house…but when it does…it’s mmmm good.

I guess that’s the way I look at Roasted Peppers.  You could eat a regular pepper.  You could use a regular pepper in any recipe and it would be good (creamy peanut butter).  But if you ROAST it, well, it might just be a special unexpected treat (crunchy peanut butter).  

And it doesn’t get any simpler:

Burn the pepper on the grill on all sides

Toss it in a paper bag for 5 minutes

That’s it.  What you’re left with is a sweeter, tastier version of a pepper.  My wife uses these in several different recipes.  One she has already shared: Pasta with Italian Sausage, Grilled Onions and Roasted Peppers.

Make a bunch, slice them up and put them in a jar with olive oil to store them for use later.  You could use a cleaned out crunchy peanut butter jar if you want.  Whatever it takes.
