    If you are looking for something that holds the flavor and will keep the peppers moist, then this step is for you. Take a pan and fill it with vegetable oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Then get the oil to a nice simmer and place the peppers into the pan.
    • Place a lid on and when the oil starts to pop shake the pan as if you are sauteing them. Do this for about 10 minutes and then turn the heat off. Drain the oil and place the peppers on whatever dish you are going to serve it on.
