Unwrap the foil from around the peppers. Use your fingers to gently pull off and discard the peels. The peels should slip right off in whole (or practically whole) pieces.

This step can be done under running water, if you like. If you're working with large numbers of peppers or chiles, the running water will make things go quicker, since the peels can start to stick to your hands as you work with more than a pepper or two.
