Roasted Peppers & Veggie Tacos

I’m so excited to share this post with you! It’s actually a two-in-one post, because I’ll show you how to make your own roasted peppers and combine them with a few other things to make veggie tacos. Now, I won’t lie, there are times when I do take the shortcut of buying a jar of roasted peppers, but when you have the time to make your own, it’s worth it! And so easy!! Really – I mean it! You also have more of the smokey, roasted flavor and get more bang for you buck! This is a great technique to have under your belt….or your apron…since we are cooking here.

Here’s what you’ll need for the roasted peppers:

  • Peppers
Yes, that’s it! Just peppers. I used 2 poblanos and 2 bell peppers for the veggie tacos below.
Preheat your broiler and place the peppers on a baking sheet under the broiler. Turn them about every 3 minutes as the skin start to blacken and bubble.
When they’re blackened all over, like the ones below, place them in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let them sit and steam until they’re cool enough to handle.
Take them out of the bowl and peel the skins off. I’ve found a paper towel helps with that. Once they’re peeled, split the pepper down one side and pull out the core.
You have now created your own roasted peppers! These are great in tacos and quesadillas, you can add them to chicken dishes, anything!
My favorite way to serve them, and sticking with the Mexican theme I have going on the past few posts, tacos! You could definitely serve these fajita style with some grilled steak or chicken, but this is a great vegetarian recipe.
You’ll need:
  • 4 roasted peppers
  • 1 onion
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Tortillas
  • Avacado
  • Lime
  • Cilantro
  • Queso Fresco
  • Salsa
  • Black Beans
  • Any other of your favorite taco toppings
I sliced and sautéed an onion, sliced up the roasted peppers, and toss with about 1 tsp of cumin. My favorite toppings are guacamole with a bit of lime and salt, cilantro, crumbled queso fresco, and these black beans. Yum!
Buon appetito!
