  • 5 jalapeño peppers


  • Cut the stems off of each jalapeño, then slice each pepper in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the membranes and seeds from the inside of each pepper.
  • Lay the jalapeños, cut side down, onto a baking sheet. Broil for 4-5 minutes until charred.
  • Immediately transfer the roasted jalapeños to a paper bag, and seal shut. Allow the jalapeños to steam in the bag for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the jalapeños from the bag, and peel the skins off of each one.
  • Refrigerate roasted jalapeños in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to a month.
