They are the best. There is no substitute. Best you'll find is something similar.
Here, in Southern AZ, I can get them pretty much anywhere, at it's up to you if you want them roasted. As they do in NM, there's always a roasting basket out back of the store, but I prefer when I buy them fresh to treat them my self. I like to stuff and bake them also for Chile Rellenos using, the green Hatch Chile (canned) sauce
My Mother moved to the San Joaquin valley and buys her Hatch Chiles canned at Costco. She divides them up into zip top bags and freezes them.
We're hooked on them, for sure!
