Roasting Poblano peppers: what went wrong?

mschow | Jan 5, 2009 06:30 AM

Yesterday I roasted a bag of poblano peppers (to make chile rellenos with). I roasted them in my gas oven, under the broiler. However, a strange thing happened with 4 of the peppers. After cooling them down in a bag, I could not remove the skin from them. In parts, the skin was blackened, in other parts, blistered. All attempts to remove the skin resulted in completely tearing the peppers up, so I discarded the ones that were unable to be peeled.
The skin from the rest of the peppers were removed without any problem. This has happened to me a few times in the past. Did I do something wrong, or was there something wrong with the peppers? So strange...
