Hide Images
  • 1
    Set oven control to Broil.
  • 2
    Arrange bell pepper and chilies on oven rack with top surfaces about 5 inches from heat. Broil, turning occasionally, until skin is blistered and evenly browned (not burned). Remove to paper bag; close tightly. Let stand 20 minutes to soften skins. Peel skins and remove seeds.
  • 3
    Place bell pepper and chilies in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.
  • 4
    Cook and stir onion and garlic in butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat about 3 minutes or until onion is tender.
  • 5
    Stir in remaining ingredients except bell pepper mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring once or twice; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 16 minutes. (Do not lift cover or stir.) Remove from heat; stir in bell pepper mixture. Cover and let steam 10 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Top with cilantro, sliced ripe olives and spoonfuls of sour cream for a perfect balance of color, texture and flavor.
  • Chilies contain skin-irritating oils, so when preparing them, wear plastic gloves to prevent the oils from getting on your hands.
