Hatch Chile FYI

ciaolette | Aug 25, 2013 10:08 AM

Bought a case of roasted Hatch , at the new Bristol Farms in Santa Monica. Great price, $35- for what turned out to be about 24 pounds of perfectly roasted chiles. One caveat. I wanted to get medium hot, Big Jim, but all they offered was mild or hot. Because I will be making Green Chile for my Dad, who can't take the hot anymore, I asked for a sample taste of the mild, and what I tasted had a good bit of heat. So I purchased mild, but at home I found that the chiles have NO HEAT AT ALL. Great flavor and perfectly roasted, and marked on the box authentic from NM. Having spent some time in NM, I know that even "mild" usually has some good heat??
I will try to catch the roasting next weekend in Pasadena, and get a case of hot, and mix 50/50.
