Preserving Hatch Chiles

Those gorgeous New Mexico Hatch Chiles are once again in season from NOW to mid September.  My friends over at Melissa’s Produce sent me a bunch of hot and mild chiles to roast and use for savory spicy dishes. I couldn’t be satisfied with hatch chiles as a seasonal treat so I decided to preserve them for an all year round indulgence. Check out my cool video below to see how.

    I ALWAYS love your videos. Thanks for the clever tip!

  11. Fantastic video! I cannot take any kind of heat. But for you I would try a Hatch Chile…

  12. That is a clever little idea!!! We usually roast and freeze whole with skins on in ziploc bags. We have a freezer full in our garage. We are actually going to stock up next weekend. I’ll have to try your version out too.
