How to Roast Peppers:
Heat broiler. Place whole peppers on foil-covered baking sheet. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 7 to 10 min. or until peppers are evenly blackened, turning occasionally. Place in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 20 min. or until peppers are cooled. Remove peppers from bag. Peel away blackened skins with small knife; discard skins. Cut each pepper lengthwise into 4 pieces; remove and discard seeds. Use as directed.
