Default I can't believe we don't have a Hatch Green Chile thread...

Every year I say I'm going to go buy some roasted green chiles. And then I don't. Maybe it's because we don't have much freezer space. But this year I don't care - I want some!

Where's a good place in Denver to buy them? How much do I buy? How much should I expect to pay?

No help in Denver, but...

In the Springs, you can buy a little baggie of peppers for $4, but a whole bushel (or half) is a far cheaper way to buy them. I would buy a bushel and then dole them out to friends - you'll save a ton of money and make friends. I also heard that hotter summers make for hotter peppers, and if the seller cautions you as to the hotness, you should probably listen to them.

Berry Patch has them. Just don't call them 'Hatch' or you will offend them. Hatch refers to a region in New Mexico (Hatch Valley near Hatch New Mexico). You can also come on down to the ghetto. There are sellers of fine roasted chilies on every corner.

We get ours from Nick's.
http://www.nicksgardencenter.com/

One of our neighbors recommended them last year and we were not disappointed. They have baskets and baskets of them. Maybe 8 or 9 different varieties. Mild to super hot. Plus they have tons of free recipe cards that feature chilies.

Buy as much as you want and they fire roast them right in front of you. Get more than you think you'll want and freeze the rest. I cannot wait!

Cool, thanks for the tip! That's close enough I can go during lunch, and then peel them after work. Mmm my truck will smell so good!

I watched a cooking show that said all the heat is in the vanes. If you want mild, and all they have is hot, you can cut out the vanes and are left with a mild chili.

If you wear contacts, be sure to wear gloves when doing any peeling and seeding.....

As a native New Mexican, there are no varieties. The only Chile worth having is Hatch. What they harvest is what you get. Some years it's hot, some years it's not. FWIW, the Hatch harvest is about to come north. I'm in New Mexico right now and the stands are getting set up, so the Chile will be here in about a week from this year's crop.

Matt: you want some good stuff? Road trip down to Antonito. That said, I've seen actual Hatch Green Chile on Federal, right by I-76 (I assume it will be there again this year).
