PHX: Chile Harvest Time!

mamamia | Aug 5, 2006 05:25 AM

It's almost time!! Hatch and Mesilla chile harvest time is coming up.

If you're looking for some, I've seen two places in the past that sell it fresh from the roaster(wrap it in a warm tortilla hot off the roaster..heaven!!)

-There's a guy who has his portable roaster with him every season in S. Payson. He just sets up shop in a parking lot.

-Food City, valley wide. They typically set up the roaster in front of the store. You grab some chile and some tortillas and you're set.

I wonder of Phoenix Ranch Market will join in on the fun. Anyone know of any other roasting stands? A friend of mine picked up a 50lb of the fresh stuff a few years ago and we roasted it on my grill. It was work, but good stuff.

It freezes very well, for up to six months.
