1 Lime

In the meantime, preheat oven to 400F. Wash the bell peppers and with a small knife cut the top off. Remove seeds and membrane (you can use a small spoon to help you). Carve out eyes, nose, and make a thin cut for mouth. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and lightly spray with oil. Roast for 25-27 minutes, depending on the size of the peppers. When ready set aside to cool down.
