Roasted Hatch Chile


Recent seed customer question:

I am asking for suggestions for what to do with my hatch chilies after I roast them?

Well, the possibilities are endless! Roasted Hatch chile can be added to all sorts of recipes. Here are some of our top suggestions on what to do with roasted hatch chile:

    • After roasting, steam them and then deseed and peel the skin off the roasted chile. We like to steam them in a pyrex glass dish with a glass lid to cut down on plastic use.

    • Freeze them in a reusable dish with a tight fitting lid for use later. Freeze in portion size so you can use them all winter.
