Roasting Green Chile

24 Oct

So the time of roasting green chile in bulk has passed. But if you find the need for more chile and don’t want the frozen stuff – here is how to roast your own green chile.

The husband and I do this because it’s just the two of us and we like fresh green chile better than frozen green chile. Don’t get me wrong I love all green chile but if you have the time, do it this way. It also makes your house smell like paradise and it’s fun to do with someone you love. Ahhhh yeah that was a little annoying sorry.

Here is what you need to know and do to roast your own chile

What you need

Green chiles – it’s easier if you can find straight chiles. The chiles that are twisted are hard to roast on all four sides.

Here is how you do it

Put the raw chiles in a cast iron skillet on high heat and let them blister and get black on all sides. You should be able to smell the wonderfulness.

Wrap them all in a towel really tight and let them steep for 15 min or so.

Then you would cut the stem off and peel the black charred skin off and chop those bad boys up!

That’s all folks!

    Reminds me of home!! When I was a kid my favorite great aunt would always roast her green chile with a pot of coffee brewing at the same time. It sounds gross, but the smell combo reminds me of happy times! The adults were sipping coffee and the kids knew they were about to get a grubbin’ meal!!! Love this post.

Let me know what you think!
