Hatch chiles!

Hatch chiles!, originally uploaded by txfiddlechick.

Roasted (thanks to Central Market), then cleaned, peeled, stemmed, seeded and chopped (thanks to me). Ready to vacuum seal and freeze in 2-cup batches, which is how much I use for a pot of green chile pork stew – somewhat of a staple in our house.

I went a little nuts this year and got 4 good sized bags of roasted chiles (a mix of mild and hot), something like 11 pounds. For scale, that's a 6-quart mixing bowl. So probably enough for 8 or more batches of stew. I have my green chile stew recipe so streamlined now that if I have the chiles ready to go, I can throw everything together in about 15 minutes.

Recipe to come.
