Roast the jalapeños directly on your gas stove top or on your grill, until they are charred on all sides.

Place the jalapeños in a large bowl. Cover them and set aside for 10-15 minutes so that the skins will steam. It'll be easy to peel the charred skin off the peppers.

5

While the jalapeños are cooling, prep the cilantro and parsley. Pull the leaves of the cilantro stems and pack them into 1 cup. Do the same with the parsley but pack them in a ½ cup.

6
Once the jalapeños are cooled down, gently peel away the charred skin under cold water from a faucet. Cut them in half and deseed. If you like spicy, skip this step and put them in the food processor.
