Sounds good! On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest)... how hot is it?

I love green chilies. I'm tired of getting screwed buying them in cans that sometimes have three, four, or five chilies in them. They are 25 cents each at the local produce store but must be roasted and skinned. I tried roasting them in the oven and over a burner without consistent results. Sooooooooo, I got out my propane torch. I put the chili on a fork and roasted it with the torch until the skin is black and blistered. The propane torch gives you precise control and you can go over an area till it is perfectly charred and blistered. Once the chili is blackened and blistered the skin scrapes right off with a sharp edge. It looks like you've burned the crap out of the chili but once you scrape the skin off the chili is beautiful.

Works for me.

Cheers,

Gus

Yeah, sounds about right! I wonder if you can do them over a campfire? I can't see why that wouldn't work. I don't really like ANY food that comes in a can. For some reason I can always taste the can. My family can't, but I can... YUCK! Plus, fresh would be easier to travel with (you know, cans weigh more).

When you are burning and blistering them does the pepper of the chili go airborne and burn peoples eyes, nose and throat? Wouldn't wanna try it on the campfire and ruin everyones evening!!!

Certainly possible but a campfire doesn't give you the precise heat control that a propane torch does. I don't really like ANY food that comes in a can. For some reason I can always taste the can. My family can't, but I can... YUCK! Have you ever tried "Canned Wheat" packed by the "Guess Who"? I always like that. Plus, fresh would be easier to travel with (you know, cans weigh more). Can't argue with that.

It's all about precise control of the roasting. I am a founding member, president, CEO, CFO, and HMFIC of the Propane Chile Roaster's Society of America and we (meaning I) have determined that a propane torch gives optimum control and results. An Oxygen/Acetylene flame (using a rosebud tip) was far too hot. A match far too cold. The typical homeowners' propane torch was "Poifect" (as Curly Joe a pasted away member of the PCRSOA would say). When roasting a chili with the torch, it does make a sound reminiscent of Snap, Crackle, and Pop of breakfast cereal fame. Not entirely unpleasant. Try it, you'll like it.

Cheers,

Gus

I most definately will try the torch!!! If it's good enough for the "statue" it's good enough for me!!!

I have not tried canned wheat. I wouldn't even know what to do with it if you handed me a can of it! Is it like a cereal or what?

If you put the charred peppers in a plastic bag for a little while right after charring, you can just rub them with a towel and all of the skin comes right off. The steam softens up the space between the skin and the "meat" of the pepper. The same thing works for tomatoes.

@Kathy53, where do you find chilis in a 24 oz can? All I can find around here are the little cans with maybe 3 chilis in them. When I go to a mexican grocery, they just have a blank look on their faces when I ask for canned chilis.

Yes, the bag should get all steamy inside-maybe 5-10 minutes.

Fergot to mention the plastic bag trick. She's right.
