5. Put the peppers in a brown paper bag and twist tightly to seal right away.
6. Keep this aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
7. Slip off the charred skin from the peppers and pull out the stems so that most of the seeds come out with it.
8. Now cut them open and discard remaining ribs and seeds. Do not rinse.
9. Cut or tear each pepper into two or four pieces.
