A couple of weeks ago, we were shopping at the local Winn Dixie. They had brought some mild and hot Hatch chilis in as it is the season. I bought several pounds @ $1.29 per. I was kind and left some for others. I roasted, peeled and packaged them for the freezer.



We went to Winn Dixie today to do some shopping. They still had them today and the boxes seemed to be as full as when we bought them before. The difference, they were now priced @ $.49 per pound. At this point, I didn't care about others and wiped them out except for the bad ones. I will be roasting them tomorrow.

Oh that looks great! I steam peel mine after they have been under the broiler and wrapped in foil. The skin comes right off. Your way looks even easier. Enjoy!

This reminds me of Arribaís Mexican Grill in Scottsdale. They had the best hot Hatch chiliís, there is nothing like that around here.

You're right about Arriba's. 25+ years in Phoenix and it was the only chain Mexican restaurant I would step foot in. Well, Los dos Molinos - but it only has 2-3 locations (and is even hotter!)

Every year, one of the Harris Teeter stores (local grocery store chain for NC and a few other surrounding states, but now owned by Kroger) does a Hatch chile roast. They bring in truckloads and a roaster and sell them by the pound. No milds this year. So 8 pounds of hots and 8 pounds of mediums(which were pretty damn hot) came home with ne. Took four hours spread over two days to peel and freeze them into snack pack size baggies.

Oh man, I envy you! Iíve brought them like that too, they are so versatile, you can use them for many different meals. Those hot Hatch chiliís pack a punch, but they are good. 16 pounds of chiliís should last you a long while.

Yep, I guess the border states are best for Mexican food. Arribaís is hard to beat.
