    This is absolutely wonderful!! I use these roasted peppers in sauces, soups and stews and the flavor is unimaginable!!

    1. Hi Barbara, on the Vortex Pro I would insert the tray into the middle position and use either the Air Fry or Bake setting. Adjust the temperature to 360°F and cook for 8-10 minutes. Hope that helps!
