Thanks. That sounds great. I'll definitely try it next time. I ended up looking up a recipe and it turned out ok, but I had a heck of a time getting the skins off the chilis. Now I know to put them in a paper bag after roasting them to sweat them off. The recipe I found turned out pretty good, but I think yours sounds better.
