    Have had this for sometime, good list of types of peppers. 
    According to this Hatch peppers are milder than a Jalapeno which is, I think, why Griff's salsa is so good. Have never seen them.

    Dude, get a large cup of creamy jalapeño dip to go. It comes with chips.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Do you mean Chuy' s the chain restaurant? Didn't know they sold Hatch, but glad you found some. I really enjoyed them, but I think the season is coming to a close here in Dallas. I could be wrong, haven't gone to the store in days. I roasted 3lbs and froze them for later.

    Never cooked one before. I'm told you need to roast them first, peel off the skin, and then use them as you wish. True?

    Pretty much.  They need to have their skins charred black; you can use a gas stove burner for two or three chiles, your Egg for a couple pounds, and if you buy them by the bushel hopefully you had them roasted in a chile roaster.  
    While still hot, the chiles need to be sealed (in a baggie, bowl with Saran Wrap on top, or a garbage bag, depending on quantity) and let them steam for 30 minutes or more; this loosens the skin from the flesh.
    Then, when cool, you peel the blackened skins off the peppers.  Then they can be slit and the seeds/ribs removed, also the stem end unless you're making chile rellenos.

  • 5 bushels of Hatch Green Chile goodness tucked away today in the deep freezer for Colorado style Green Chile through out the winter.  The Mrs. didn't say a word when I said I'll take five boxes.  Now I need to figure out how to cool my hand after soaking in chili juice for three hours.

    Hard to get here in the Midwest but it was worth the time to roast, peel, and pack up.

    Ok. Tonight's menu was fajitas with hatch chilies as star of the veggies. Outstanding. They do have a different flavor. Slightly hot and interesting. Have a pile of them. Gotta save em.

    Two burlap bags of Hatch Chillies straight from the Hatch Vally. 
     Spent several hours yesterday roasting these bad boys. One bag of "hot" one of "medium". Added some to grilled avocados, roasted Russian Garlic, roasted corn and a few other ingredients for the best guacamole EVER.

  • What makes the Hatch Pepper specificially suited for NM? Has anyone tried to grow these peppers anywhere else?  I'm in VA and we grow all kinds of diffierent varieties of peppers.  Just curious.
