It’s my self-declared Chile Roasting Day!
Here’s a how to for you…
Today I’m using Pasilla Chiles, they are a little larger than Anaheim Chiles.
Heat your broiler up.
I set mine to 500
Place your chiles on a lined sheet pan
Place sheet pan about 4-6 inches from the heat source
Set timer for 8-10 minutes
Check the chiles accordingly as your timer goes off
With each check move/flip your chiles around
The idea is to scorch the chiles on all sides
Second side done.
My chiles cooked/roasted in about 20 minutes, 10 minutes per side. Depending on your chile size your roasting might go a lot quicker. When I roast Anaheim chiles they take about half the time.
I like to use brown lunch bags for steaming. Place all your chiles in a bag or two and seal the bags by folding them over a few times near the top
For added steaming lock-in I like to cover and tuck in my bagged chiles with a clean dish towel
Let them steam at least an hour.
Now the are ready to peel and use in the recipe of your choosing.
Have a happy day all. Take care, do what you can to stay safe. g.
