Chile, not Chili!
It's that time of year again! Anyone that has lived in New Mexico knows that life revolves around the Long Green Chile, especially in and around Hatch, NM. I lived in Las Cruces, MN for a few years as well as El Paso, TX. Fell in love with the food.
So every August, some years before Sturgis, some years after Sturgis, I get three bushels of LGC that the produce manager at a local grocery store gets for in me. They get roasted, then frozen. I normally run out just as July is coming to an end. Wife and I just spent close to 3 hours cleaning and roasting these. I will break them down into quart freezer bags later on. They have to cool first. We ended up with 32 quart size freezer bags of more or less the same weight. In a normal year we run out somewhere around the end of July.
Set aside 2 dozen real nice ones. Wife made Chile Rellenos . I made a red Chile Sauce and cheese sauce to go with them. A few of our friends and her parents came over to sample them! And yes they were good!
