Anaheim peppers grilling and smoking.

My wife gets food in our hometown off the Bountiful Baskets truck that comes around every other week. This week she purchased a 23lb. box of Anaheim peppers which we roasted for making chili dishes. We roast them on the egg, then when they are finished on all the sides, we put them into a gallon ziploc bag, let them sweat in it, then place them into the freezer till we use them. Great chili rellenos, and pork chili verde are my favorites.

    I lived in Albuquerque for 5 years, and the end of the summer had chile roasters on street corners everywhere; the smell was intoxicating.  There's a restaurant in Salt Lake City that roasts to order, so I get a bushel every fall and fill up the freezer.  Good Stuff!!

  • We used to live in Pagosa Springs, Co. and the town was the same way in fall. We would get chili's from Hatch then, and the town would be alive with the smell of roasting peppers. Those roasters would do a bushel at a time.  :)

    We get a 25 lb. box each year from Berridge Farms in Hatch NM.  Sure wish I had one of those roasters, they work fantastic.  It's an all day job roasting, peeling and packing on the BBQ.  I admit I use the gassser for this chore.  And as @botch says it smells incredible.  They freeze up great.
