These are really quite tasty and make a wonderful appetizer or condiment to go with Mexican foods. We started getting these to go with our food at a local taqueria. There really isn’t a whole lot to making them, but they are different and really good! You could use small sweet peppers if you don’t like much heat.

Chiles Toreados

  • 6 fresno chiles (fresh red chiles or fresh green jalapeno chiles or serranos)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt
  • Lime wedges (optional)


  1. Heat a comal/griddle or cast iron skillet until it is hot. Or you can do these on a grill if you prefer, direct heat.
  2. Place chiles whole on the comal, and turn as they blacken, cooking for about 5 to 10 minutes or until they get charred all over.
  3. Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. Squeeze some fresh lime over them as well, if you like.
