    HEB has Hatch Chilies

    My local HEB has Hatch chilies (but no roaster - gotta DIY) for $37.00/ 25lb case ($1.48/lb). Hot or mild. I bought a case of each despite having ordered from hatch-green-chili.com

    They are cheaper than the ones from hatch-green-chili.com but do not specify the variety, only "hot" or "mild." I'll be firing up the PK shortly and roasting them, trying to decide it I want to keep the hot and mild separate or blend them when I vacuum seal.

    Half done: it took nearly 3 hours to roast 25lbs on the PK. Tomorrow I'll fire up the kamado and the PK to cut the time down.

        I'd be sending the kids to the store at that price.

      They get down to 3 lbs for $1 in another week or so. Just my luck - No kids.

        That is cheap enough to make shipping worth while, if I didn't already have a bunch I'd hit you up and send you an insulated container to fill.

      Got plenty last week at my HEB. They got the roaster tumbling right outside their door as usual. The whole store permeates with the goodness so there is no possible way to not buy a boat load, including the Hatch Bacon, Hatch cheese, Hatch burgers, Hatch soap, Hatch blinker fluid. Every isle Hatch. You can even get a Hatch carwash, and Hatch gas.

        I wish our HEB had a roaster but roasting my own gave me an excuse to stand around outside drinking beer; as if I need an excuse for that

        The Hatch blinker fluid is a game changer, my blinkers have never worked better.

      Yep, got my supply pre- roasted couple days ago. One thing positive to say about August.

        It’s chili roasting weekend at our house. We roasted 24 lbs today and netted 12 lbs of skinless stemless chili. We leave the seeds in. Tomorrow we have another 11 lbs to process.

          I could just start eating that pile as is. Love Hatch chilies. I still have 25 lbs green and 25lbs red coming from hatch-green-chili.com. Hopefully it will all last until next season but I just opened my last bag of the 10lbs of Charger chilies I ordered last month, I'm going through them pretty fast.

        We only buy the extra hot. I made a batch of pico today. Nothing better than fresh extra hot hatch chili.
        Are the chilies you get fresh or processed?

          I bought fresh and roasted them myself. That pico looks great.

          It doesn’t last long. My wife & I will wipe it out the day it’s made, or for breakfast the next day. This batch is about gone.

        6 medium - large Roma tomatoes
        4 green onions
        4 hatch green Chile’s, extra hot
        2 cloves of garlic, pressed
        cilantro, about 1/3 of a bunch
        salt to taste
        everything is finely chopped
        😋 Very simple

          Never had Hatch chili’s. How do you use them? How hot are they?

            SavageSmoke They will taste similar to an Anaheim pepper (Anaheims originated from seeds transported from New Mexico to California about 100 years ago) and different cultivars go from mild to extra hot. I order the hot ones. Not as hot as jalapenos, never had the extra hot ones.

            The soil and climate (terroir) of the Hatch Valley makes these peppers special (better flavor) and they are seasonal.

          I use them in pico, jerky, hamburgers, salsa verde, just about anything.
          They can be really hot but the flavor is just so dang good. They’re addictive.
