Not once, but twice, this article quotes someone and that quote is an incomplete sentence (on its own) and ends with a comma.

If you can't write, you don't deserve hatch chiles, New Mexico.


/I guess there will be a glut of red chiles on the market, this year.

Oh no...now things are getting real.  I've got 25lbs on order...I wonder when I'll get them.  I saw recently that they cancelled the annual Hatch festival. You have to think that a lot were typically consumed at that event.  I think you're right; there will be a glut of chiles available this year (and many will go red). I may order some more.

What's the problem? Just arrest a few attractive and successful prospective farmworkers, and use them as involuntary labor! It worked fine for Georgia.

But surely there are some Real AmericansTM who, through no fault of their own or the president's, are out of work and would gladly take these jerbs.

If I could I would create aerosols of roasting green chiles, piñon pine smoke, and Jemez mountains Ponderosa pine air.

What do you do with that many? Freeze them, pickle them? The grocery stores around here sell grilled hatch peppers, and I'll buy them or just some fresh ones. They're good, but I can't see eating 25 pounds before they go bad.

They freeze well. I have been eating up last years the past few weeks preparing freezer space for this years. They can last 1-1.5 years in the freezer. I freeze in mixed batches.   A few gallon bags for large meals and events, a lot of sandwich sized bags for the average enchilada type meals, and then some of the little snack ziplocks for the daily/weekly use. Thrown in a small processor and then put on alot of different things. A bagel with butter, cream cheese and fresh green chile is amazing.

There is already early roasting going on at local grocery stores. The Young Gunz brand that seems to be the earliest each year. Not one of the better brands (IMO) but still decent green chile.

I typically go to a place in the South Valley and get a mix of hatch medium and Lemitar hot. Lemitar produces some great hot chiles.

I think if they put out a call statewide along the lines of 'if we dont have help we wont have chiles' they would get alot of people there.

1. Roast them on the grill over charcoal
2. Peel
3. Chop
4. Bag with about 1c/bag
5. Freeze*
6. Enjoy
7. Profit?

They're fantastic. Then I use them to make green chili and/or green chile sauce or various other things.

*If you lay the bags flat when you freeze them they take up very little space in your freezer.
