When the chiles are roasted, the flame is turned off and the drum continues to turn so most of the seeds and skins fall off. We pack them in a big trash bag to take home to separate and freeze. The aroma is heavenly and just hangs over the entire area. Roasted Green Chiles is one of my all time favorite smells.
We separate our fresh chiles and freeze them with our Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer. This way we have fresh green chiles in our freezer all year.
As soon the weather turns just a little cool, enjoy a batch of our Hatch Green Chile Stew. It’s best served it with corn tortillas or flour tortillas but we are sure it also would be delicious with homemade cornbread.But if you don’t live near Hatch New Mexico, you can still enjoy fresh green chiles by buying Hatch Fresh Green Chiles already frozen online right here.
