  • Any size slow cooker
  • Slow cooker liner or foil
  • tongs


  • 4 large red peppers


  • I like to use either a slow cooker liner or foil.  The liner will allow for less clean up.  However, I think the foil conducts the heat a little better.  Either way, clean up is minimal.

  • Cook on high for 4-5 hours.  You will be able to tell when the peppers are ready because the skin will start to blister.

  • Allow peppers to sit until cool.   Skin should peel off rather easily at this point

If you plan to use your peppers in a recipe, make sure that all of the seeds and the core are fully discarded. The seeds will make a recipe bitter.
Great to serve with olive oil and garlic or to use in a variety of recipes!
