“This recipe is from the Food Network, Licence to Grill. I have made them twice on the bbq but you could also cook them in the oven if you prefer. I don't think I removed the skin the 2nd time making these, just to save time. Make sure you remove the seeds and ribs well, these can be quite spicey.”
14 peppers
