Did you know it is spelled chile? :-)

Just giving you a hard time nmnita! I know you lived here for a good while, and I have read and appreciated your posts for years and certainly value your opinion. Just be glad you can get NM chile, Hatch or otherwise. Many others are not so lucky.

As regards chiles grown outside their 'native' region. I remember a couple of years ago I was in Norway and had some hamburgers for dinner at a 'grillfest' (backyard barbecue). Among the condiments were some pickled jalapenos of the type ubiquitous in Tex-Mex, and now in most parts of the US. I went to the fridge to find the bottle or can they came from, and right there was the jar with its label proclaiming "Don Julio Jalapeno Peppers". Looking close at the label, "Grown in India". :-)

Hey, I can't begrudge anyone. You take what you can get, right?

Well I do know that but I had a mind slippage or I just got the spelling of chili and chile confused.

Oh and as for getting them: the first year they appeared here and we bought about 20 lbs, the poor grocery people, from the produce dept. to the check out counter, thought we had lost our minds. They had no idea what they were, much less what we would do with them. I don't get as many strange looks anymore.

We used to get ours from a guy in the Belen area cause that is where we lived. Our neighbor and I would go together, buy them, have them roasted and then bag them up for our winter and spring cooking. I am just glad we can get them here, I don't care what they are called or where they are from. I do think, the name "Hatch" is just something we are all used to using. Heck, I don't know for sure, the ones we get here are actually from Hatch but I assume they are.

In season, there is a guy who parks on Rt 47 by the Manzano expressway in Belen with a roaster and for a fee, will roast all the chiles you want.

I am a red chili fan myself, green becomes my "backup plan"!

We never got it from him, but I certainly saw him often enough. We only lived a few miles from there. I don't remember the name of the guy we used, as our friends used to pick them up but I am thinking it was Padilla?

I love it. Every time I go to NM, I eat it on everything.

I'm pretty sure if I could inject it with a needle I would. Not sure why... it adds a unique flavor that's addicting.

My dad developed his own variety of chile down in Los Lunas. I occasionally will plant some of his seeds.

But since I haven't had the time to grow a small crop, my family just get their supply from Togami Farms in El Cerro.

Yum.

I work for a hotel in Madison,WI. We use them for many different things, mac n cheese, breakfast enchilada's, pork sandwiches, calamari...its nearly a staple in our kitchen. We also get in regularly top shelf Wisconsin cheeses in which they pair very well with certain ones. Green Chili's are a lot of fun to work with and add surprising results to many different items.
