Hatch Pepper Season

Our local H.E.B. store is selling Hatch Peppers  for 99¢ per pound if anyone is interested.

I know they are popular among a lot of Eggheads but I don't know how to cook with them.  Hopefully, someone will jump in and give us some clues.

    If you can find someone with a special-made chile roaster, that's the easiest way to do it with larger quantities (I used to buy a bushel each year).  
    The guy I used to use would bring a semi-load up from Hatch at the end of each summer and roast them to-order in his backyard.  Some bozo left her bag of roasted chile in her car a couple days before using, got sick, complained, and now Utard requires a permit; my source got so disgusted he just retired.
    Thanks for the reminder, I'm gonna have to google a new source, surely there's someone nearby who springs for the permit...
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    First, you've got to roast them and peel them.  I learned how to make Chicken Enchiladas, New Mexico Style in Taos.

    In a greased casserole pan, layer corn tortillas (laid flat), hatch chiles (chopped), cooked chicken (shredded), and yellow cheese. When finished, add another layer.  Cook (on egg) until cheese is bubbly (about 20 minutes at 350.  Works in the oven too.
