  • 5-10 whole Chili Peppers you can use any amount of peppers you have on hand.


  • Place whole peppers on a hot gas grill over high heat.
  • Rotate peppers every couple of minutes so you achieve a char, but not a burn. You want to achieve a char on all sides.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place baking sheet directly in the freezer for 1-2 hours until peppers are frozen,
  • Remove frozen peppers from baking sheet and place in a freezer bag.
  • To use, remove desired amount of peppers from freezer.
  • Place under warm running water. The skins will slip right off and the seeds will rinse out.
  • Cut off the top and use the meaty part of the pepper.


You can use any kinds of chili pepper. Roast the amount you have on hand.
