Smoked Red Peppers

I was at Sam's yesterday, and picked up a bag of 6 luscious big red bell peppers for cheap! We smoked them today-if you haven't done this...wowee wow wow! They're great pureed into tomato soup. I also like this sauce recipe from Bobby Flay:


  • 4 smoked red bell peppers, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle puree
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or olive oil


Combine peppers, onion, garlic, vinegar, honey, mustard, chipotle and salt and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the oil and blend until emulsified. Strain sauce into a bowl.

This classic sauce is great on grilled veggies, chicken, fish and steak.
