    SUBSTITUTEIf you have a large fresh red bell pepper on hand, you can use that instead of the jarred roasted red peppers. To roast, pierce pepper with long fork; hold pepper over gas flame 1 to 2 min. or until pepper is blackened on all sides, turning frequently. Remove pepper from fork; place in resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; let stand 15 min. When cool enough to handle, remove pepper from bag. Remove and discard blackened skin and seeds. Chop pepper, then use as directed.
