I had always been a bit apprehensive of roasting my own peppers so I continued to pay a ton for them at the store.
Then I had three peppers that needed to be used and I decided to just try roasting my own. Its easy to do right in the broiler! Heat the broiler on high, place peppers on a pan and essentially let them burn, turning to burn all sides. (Everyone can burn food, right?) Once you let the peppers cool you can easily the remove peel and seeds.
This relish can be used for just about anything. Try it with grilled steak or fish. Put it on pizza. Eat it with slices of bread and some melted cheese. Try it with eggs or just plain on its own.
Whatever you do with it, it’s sure to make any food look good and add delicious roasted pepper flavor to every bite.

Preheat broiler to high.
Place peppers on a baking sheet on top rack, closest to the broiler.
Cook for about 15 minutes, rotating the peppers every few minutes when the skin gets dark.
Let peppers cool.
Remove seeds and skin. The skin should peel off pretty easily.
