Earlier in August, I got my hands on some Hatch Chilies from Whole Foods. Hatch chilies are grown in New Mexico and are heavenly! I bought a whole case (25 pounds) of 1/2 mild chilies and 1/2 medium chilies. I spit the box with a friend. It was $40 for the box. As an added bonus, they roast them for you.
Once you get them home, the skins need to be peeled off. I would have de-seeded them too but I was too lazy after all the peeling. I packed them in food saver bag and froze them in the freezer until solid. Once they were frozen, I sealed them in the bags. I'll keep them in the freezer until I need them.
I've already tried a few recipes using the Hatch Chilies. Here's some of them:
- Hatch Chile Verde
- Roasted Hatch Green Chile and Tomato Salsa
