Roasting Peppers

Want to know a great way to add flavor and depth to a recipe? Try roasting your veggies!
I noticed that I had a few Anaheim Chilies on my plant that looked ready for picking. I decided that they would make a nice addition to the Vegan Tacos I was planning on making for dinner tonight.
Roasting peppers (hot or Bell Peppers ) are super easy! Pre heat your oven on the "Broil" setting. Just lay your peppers on a cookie sheet and place the cookie sheet on the top shelf of the oven. Your peppers should just be a couple of inches from the heat. Broil your peppers turning once until the skins turn black ( keep an eye on them because this can happen quickly.) Remove peppers from oven and quickly place in a plastic bag to "sweat". After peppers cool....the skins should peal off fairly easily leaving a slightly charred flesh behind.
