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.
