  • salt to taste.
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder.
  • 1 teaspoon paprika.
  • optional: 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.


  • Wash the bell peppers and roast - either in the oven, stove top or in your grill. I roasted mine for 40 minutes in 400F oven until blackened and blistered. Let it cool down, then peel and dice.
