    might need to cook a little longer..normally this type of chili is roasted and peeled before consuming..
  3. you could blanch the peppers before you stuff them. I have done this when baking some dishes with whole peppers.
  4. coyote is right - this pepper is usually rosted and peeled before stuffing.

    I do alot of these as abt's... the grandma doesn't do hot... we do all sorts of peppers... cook them a slower for a little longer... blanching them is good too, or steam them... that works good and the oils give you a nice start on a spicy stock

    They do have a tough skin. Roasting and peeling them will make them softer and give some good flavor.

    Not smoking related, but anaheims are great sliced into shoestring pieces & fried in beer batter!!!!

    Like Coyote says, roast and peel them. This is one of my favorite chiles, I always roast or char them and bag them up,and after they sweat a little in the bag sauna, I peel them and do things with them. That sounds bad, I mean I use them in recipes.[​IMG] I even do my jalapenos this way, saves a lot of gnawing, I have no teeth and all my stuff has to be soft[​IMG]
    That's why I say- "you don't need no teeth to eat my beef",to quote someone I heard/read somewhere![​IMG]

    You might also want to try Marconi peppers instead. An old world type from Italy, they're a lot tastier than bells, a look much like an Anaheim, however they have no slight heat-zing at the end like an anaheim sometimes will.
