Tips for roasting jalapeno peppers in the oven

I highly recommend making sure that you have a pair of food-safe gloves when handling the peppers. This will prevent you from burning your fingers, especially if you suffer from eczema on your hands as I do.

If you do by chance get the peppers on your skin and need help washing it off, a cool trick my mother taught me was to take a shower and wash your hair well. The hair stands, soap and water all combine to help wash not only your hands from the pepper juices but also leaves your body feeling clean.

My mom told me when she was growing up the kids used to prep the peppers for the elders and everyone would take turns in the shower to get clean after.

I’m still not sure how much of this actually works, or the science behind it, but it is something that I practice when I roast my own peppers, which admittedly isn’t often as the kids are picky and not fans haha.

FAQ’s about roasted jalpenos

How do you roast jalapenos in the oven?

Roasting them in the oven is easy. I recommend slicing them in half before begining. Remove seeds and rinse again to remove debris and seeds. Then brush with olive oil and broil until blistered. Place in a close airtight continer a few minutes to steam and then remove skin and use as needed.

Does roasting jalapenos make them milder?

It does, to an extent. But roasting peppers makes them sweeter, more smokey, and helps to break down the capsaicin in them to make them less hot.

Can I freeze roasted jalapenos?

Yes, you can. When you thaw the roasted peppers, the texture will become softer so it’s best to only do this if you plan on baking them into something where the texture change will be less noticeable.

How to roast jalapenos

Wash your peppers and slice them in half.

Remove the seeds and then rinse again.

Lightly brush olive oil over the skin of the peppers and place them skin side up on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Broil in the oven on High for 3-4 minutes until blistered and the skin looks like it’s peeling.

Afterward, remove the peppers and immediately place them into an airtight container with a fitted lid. Let rest/steam for 10 minutes. This makes the skin easier to peel off.

After the time is up, peel the skin from the peppers and dice or use as needed.
