We lived just south of Hatch New Mexico for 17 years and we have many Hatch Green Chili Recipes.  But one of our favorites is this appetizer of fried green chile strips.
 
One of the biggest things I miss about New Mexico is the abundance of fresh green chile.  I really like jalapeños but totally love, I mean head over heels in love with green chiles.    We grew up on the mild ones that usually come canned but it’s different than the Fresh Hot Green chilies that are raised in the Mesilla Valley in New Mexico.
 
 Anytime we make a trip to New Mexico or I see Hatch Green chiles on sale at our local market, I always grab a huge bag.  Usually, we can have them fire-roasted immediately and divvy them up into freezer bags later to enjoy all year.   Then we are able to enjoy so many of our Hatch Green Chili Recipes that are made with the real thing.

These chili roasters are seen all over the Mesilla Valley and probably all over most of New Mexico.  A huge bag of fresh chile is placed inside the revolving wire drum.    And a flame is lite which roasts the chilies as the drum rotates then after the flame is extinguished, the drum will continue to rotate, thus allowing most the skin and some of the seeds to fall free.    It’s the most wonderful smell in the world, the entire valley smells of freshly roasted green chili.   The chilies are then dumped into a plastic trash bag for transport.

But we can also buy these green chilies on Amazon and have them delivered right here to the gates of the Ranch.

 

How to make this  Fried Green Chile Appetizer:

A favorite way to devour these chiles is by making these Green Chile Strips.  We make these similar to the way a chile Relleno is made by battering the whole chile.  We then fry the whole chile and serve it with a  honey teriyaki sauce.
