If you have a fresh red pepper, you can easily roast it yourself to use in this recipe. Place pepper on foil-covered baking sheet. Broil, 4 inches from heat, until pepper is blackened on all sides, turning occasionally. Place pepper in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 20 min. or until pepper is completely cooled. Remove pepper from bag; peel away blackened skin with small sharp knife. Discard skin. Cut pepper lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. Chop pepper, then use as directed.
Substitute any firm-fleshed fish, such as halibut or tuna, for the chicken.
