That’s right, Hatch Chilies from New Mexico!
I bought a 25 pound box of them yesterday. Today I roasted them on the grill, put them all in the stew pot to steam for half an hour, then peeled and bagged them.
25lbs = 10 quart sized ziplock baggies.
I’m already thinking about getting another box but I won’t roast all of them again. I like to make Chile Rellenos out of this particular pepper because it has a lot of fire. As for how many scoville points these have, I’m not certain, but I can tell you after taste testing one raw, they are HOT!
I had to wiki it…here goes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoville_scale
Claims that these are somewhere around 2,500 — 8,000 Scoville Units (my error, they are units not points).
