You can really just keep them on hand and load them up in almost anything. They are a nice addition to a lot of things!

Romesco sauce.
Sauteed with onions as a topping, main ingredient for sandwiches.
Use in paella, jambalaya.
Use with onions and other vegetables for a base for braising chicken a la chicken cacciatore.

+1 to pasta, pizza.

Thanks Everybody....good stuff here. :thumbsup:
I'm trying not to use them as a 'star' ingredient, but more as a 'supporting actor'. For me, canned roasted peppers always taste like crap. Cnochef, I'm gonna try the soup w/ diced roasted eggplant and pesto. Michael, I really like Romesco; one of my faves. Maybe a dirty rice w/ black beans and red pepper coulis. I could pair it with some 10oz ribeyes that magically appeared in my cooler. I'm also going to try drying them out a bit in the oven and grinding them with some local chilis to make harrissa or a sambal.

Harrissa or Sambal would be good on pizza!

Chop the peppers and toss with smashed garbanzos, lemon juice, pimenton & minced parsley.

Or add them to hearty soups!
