To be honest, I often buy roasted bell peppers in a jar for a super-convenient pantry-friendly alternative. If I want to make my own roasted bell peppers, I’ll use the broiler instead of an open flame.

Why Roast Bell Peppers in the Broiler
I used to roast bell peppers on an open gas flame – but it can be messy, if the pepper starts leaking juices onto my stovetop.
Roasting under the broiler is safer and less messy!
You can roast many bell peppers at the same time.
How to Roast Bell Peppers
- whole bell peppers
- Place the bell peppers on a baking sheet and we'll use this as a guide to the oven rack position. Have at least 4" of space between the top of the peppers and the flames.
- Turn oven to broil. Roast 5 minutes, use tongs to flip. Repeat 3-4 times, until the skin is blackened.
- Remove blackened bell peppers to a large bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap to steam the bell peppers. When cool enough to handle, peel away the blackened skin with a paring knife or your hands.
