Hatch green chile season is here, and while there’s no canned substitute for the real thing, you can get the real thing by mail order, by the sack or by the pound. El Rey Farms delivers the chiles to La Puente High School on Saturday, August 12; Saturday, August 26; Saturday, September 9; and Saturday, September 16, says Norm Man. There may be another date in late September, depending on Mother Nature. There will be vendors in the parking lot who can roast your chiles on the spot.
