    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    This is one of my hubby's favorite accompaniments with a meal at Acapulco's in Norwood, MA. I don't even think it's on the menu, but he's friends with the owner and a lot of the staff, so they make him all kinds of stuff that isn't on the menu. Silly-simple, but really good if you enjoy hot peppers. I'm posting this partly for safekeeping, partly because DH gets a kick out of me having recipes for pretty much everything he can think of!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 -16 hot peppers (either serranos or jalapenos are best)
    • vegetable oil (for rubbing chilis)
    • coarse salt (to taste)
    • lime wedge (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat a comal, griddle, or small cast iron skillet over medium high heat (these may also be grilled outdoors, just adjust cooking time accordingly for more intense heat).
    2. 2
      Slightly flatten whole chiles (the side of a large knife or cleaver works well). Rub each chile with a thin coat of oil, then roast them on the preheated pan for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until they begin to blister and char (turning occasionally).
    3. 3
      Remove roasted chiles to a serving dish. Sprinkle with coarse salt to taste, and squeeze lime wedges over chiles (if using).
    4. 4
      Serve as a bar snack, or as an accompaniment to grilled meats.

      I have been trying to figure out exactly how to make these so that they taste like the ones our favorite Mexican restaurant and this recipe does the trick! I used jalapenos and seasoning salt and they turned out perfect! Thanks for posting this recipe!

      These were MUY CALIENTE and were a nice accompaniment to our enchiladas. I'll definately keep this easy recipe in mind for my next mexican meal.
