The skin does not have to blacken to become loose; if it wrinkles when you push it with the tongs, the chile has been blistered enough. If you have a large number of chiles to put up, outdoor grilling is an excellent method. The chiles will blister quickly and take on a smoky flavor. Roast the peppers on an open grill over hot coals, about 4 to 6 inches from the flame. Watch the chiles carefully and turn frequently.
