    The sale of NM chiles started today at 6:00 hrs, and Gloria and I were the first ones in the store. We grabbed (3) 30 pound sacks for $28.99 a sack, and the roasting was free. We headed out to the front of the store only to find out that the roasting didn’t start till 08:00, so we shot the breeze with other chileheads and took a few pics. I sure wish I had one of those propane tanks, I could smoke for a month on one tank.
    We’ll have enough to last us another year, we feel very lucky in that we found the chiles after the harvest was over. Now I have to start putting a dozen in each freezer bag, not a clean job. Thanks for checking out our pics.

    It would be so great to have a place like that around here, not only a great find on tons of chilis but they even roasted them for free in front of the store.
    I expect we will see several chili dishes in the months to come.
  10. Sorry to get in late on this conversation. I see you are in Whittier, I am in Yorba Linda, I've never seen Albertson's have these events going on down my way. When do they do it? next September I'd like to be out early standing in line for roasted chilies.

    Awhile back someone ask me to post when the NM green/fresh chile sacks would be available in So Cal. Well folks, here’s the lowdown as of Thursday, July 08, 2010.


    I just spoke to the produce manager at Albertsons, and he said August 28th starting at 6 am, the chile sacks will go on sale for $32.99 per sack including roasting. The sacks are a bushel or around 30 lbs. If you have any questions please call the produce manager. If you're in a different area, call your local Albertsons market; and ask for the produce manager. Ask if they will be carrying the NM green chile sacks, and the details. You might want to print this out or copy the information to your calendar.

    If I get any other dates and/or locations, I will update ASAP.

    Albertsons Market
    855 Wilcox Ave.
    Montebello, CA 90640
    (323) 724-0462

    As far as I know this information is for SoCal., but I'd call your Albertsons produce manager to see if he can hook you up. Good luck.

    Memories memories, I used to get mine in Ignacio new Mexico for like 15 bucks A bag from the Indians there. It was A party in front of the store every morning. Then the durango diner for green chili over breakfast. Those were the days.
