oh, I forgot. The best way to preserve roasted peppers is to freeze them. Otherwise they will last in the fridge in a zip bag or sealed container for about a week. You can't can them unless you use a pressure canner. I've dehydrated jalapeno's and habenero's and then ground up in a spice grinder and sprinkled that into dishes for some heat. Works pretty good.

I always roast peppers over the flame on the gas stove top. I lay them directly on the metal/iron grate and clean that as soon as it cools. Easiest and least hassle in my opinion. Holding on to the pepper with tongs the entire time is a good way to get burned so I don't agree with that in the video. Good luck roasting Habanero's...ugh, those things STINK to high heaven when you roast them. I'd advise to do those outside on the grill if you do that. Seriously! 6 cups of roasted green chili peppers would equal A LOT of raw peppers. I grow my own in the summer and I'd say it would take at least 2 dozen to get that amount once roasted and chopped (unless their huge). Green chili's are green chili's...they have a mild heat. You can buy them in a can in the Hispanic aisle at grocery store versus doing it yourself for more accurate amounts. Or use Poblano or Anaheim peppers as a good substitute, plus those are larger and would take maybe 10 or so for 6 cups roasted. Hard to say as they can

I love the roasted sweet bell peppers from Portillo's in Chicago but I live in Texas! They use Olive Oil and spices but I can't seem to make it the same. Any suggestions?

I have made roasted peppers in the oven, but wanted to see how to make them on a grill. I like the idea of the stove top when only 1-2 peppers are needed and it it seems fast. However, I don't have a gas stove. I am glad I watched the video, because on the grill I may have used a little oil. It looks like it isn't needed. A bowl with plastic wrap over the top, does work fine to steam them to remove the skin. The only thing is I wish the video would have mentioned how to preserve the roasted red peppers or how to store them in the fridge best. I am still trying to figure that one out. TY
