Roasting green chiles...mini Q-view

  1. Chilies are finally in season. I picked up about 20 lbs of fresh green chilies from Hatch, NM. And here they are roasting.

    I'm sorry that one came out blurry. I guess I deleted the wrong one.  I always pack and freeze these once they're peeled and put them on any steaks, burgers, bbq sammies, etc. I also put them in stews, beans, canned tuna, spaghetti, corn, salsa, and in the words of Forrest Gump..."that's all I know about that."

    Excellent.  Enjoy them.

    My Italian chiles are coming off big time.  We are enjoying them.

    Eggplants doing well.  It is a great time of year here, except for the electric bill.  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Love Hatch chiles! I will be picking up about 90lbs this weekend at albertsons.
     
  6. They are the best! I just wish I had a good barrel roaster to roast them, it would be so much easier.

    you can get Hatch chiles mild or hot and yes a basket really helps in large batches. there simple to roast over your grill also just not to close,you want to keep turning and flipping to scorch the skins and steam the meat of  the pepper until pliable.once roasted throw them right into a large paper bag for 5-10 min. as this will ease the peeling of the skin.I remove the skin and seeds under running water.and yes they do freeze very well in sucky bags.
     
  9. ^^^ What he said! I've never heard the paper bag thing but I will try that. I don't have a restaurant I just eat them with everything and they will last me for the next year.

  12. I wouldn't de-seed them though! That's where the good heat is!
     
  13. Can't you store your roasted chillies in olive oil rather than freezing? they would keep for just as long & not be subject to freezer-burn...never mind using the chilli infused & flavoured oil for cooking!  Bunyip
     
  14. Hmmmm...I never thought of that. How do I do this? Just cram them into a jar of evoo?

    Thanks for the mini Q-view. Getting my Hatch Chilies Saturday. 30 lbs. should do me since I'm the only one in the family that loves these things.

    Very nice, D!!

    Nothing beats a fresh roasted green chile.  Me and Bassman roasted our first picking a couple of weeks ago.  We had enough we didn't worry about weighing them...!

    First picking - right at nine buckets - here's some of them.



    Nice peppers this year - these were a good average of what we picked today. Very uniform, decent size, and very meaty.



    FIRE!!



    One batch roasted.

    That there is how u do a chile roast. Nice looking peppers
     
  18. Oh good Lord! That there is a roaster! One of these days I'll get one, but it just seems not worth it to me right now to use one or two days a year. Those look pretty friggen good though! Thanks for sharing your pics!
