    Grind ya up some, keep in an airtight container fer seasonin...Me? I wouldn't fool bout, even fer a minute, tryin to remove alla th seeds, etc...; jus look at a jar of red pepper flakes: they gots seeds, an all...

    They look to be Hatch, my best uneducated guess'd be Sandias, or Lumbre...

    Make a big batch of adobo sauce, the stuff will freeze well. You can make chili, quesadillas, birria, and a variety of various tacos. Chicken adobo is excellent. Geese ship those suckers to me, I'll take care of it for you

      I was thinking the same thing. Marinade some pork steaks, char them up hot and fast the slice thin for some awesome tacos!!

    Make a batch of red chile (think of it as a thick, red sauce) as a base. Looking at the photo, that may make 1-2 blenders full of red chile base, if that’s what you have on hand.

    From there:
    • Carne Adovada - red chile with cubed pork
    • Posole - hominy cooked in water that you then add the red chile to, makes a killer soup
    • turn that red chile into a sauce for enchiladas, cheese or beef
    • Red Chile with some browned ground beef and simmered in the chile for a bit, served with a side of Pinto Beans
    • Huevos Rancheros - some tortillas layered with pinto beans, fried potatoes or hash browns, eggs any style and topped with red chile
    • tamales, but...that’s a bit intensive with the work

    that’s my idea when I have dried red chile pods. And, I’m happy to provide you any recipes for the above if you would like. Just let me know.

      marshall - sorry....haha! I got so excited to see more red chile pods! it didn’t even click! Is this part of the gift you received from Chimayo? Or is this in addition? I remember you had powder as well. But...you are in for a treat!

      I posted this in another thread a while ago, but what I would do is sprinkle those with a little water, then throw them on the PBC for a while. Grind them fine and you have smoked chili powder to do whatever you want with.
