a pepper held over fire and a pepper in a plastic bag

  1. Holding a pepper with tongs over open fire burn the skin all over the pepper.
  2. Place the pepper in a plastic ziplock bag, close it and let rest for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Take the pepper out of the bag and scrape or peel the skin off using a knife or just your fingers.
  4. Cut around the stalk (the green part that connects the pepper to the stem of pepper plant) and take it out together with the seeds. Make sure you remove all the seeds.
