Leftover green chiles?

what can i use these for? is ther any kind of soup they'd go well with? i buy them and then have a lot left over, and they always go to waste.
many thanks.

You could make chili flavoured olive oil to use in dressings or when cooking chicken or other meats.

You could try freezing whole ones or pickling them for later use.

I always just freeze them, like Andy says.

Be careful if you make the oil. Fresh peppers present the risk of botulism, so if you do infuse oil, make sure you keep it in the fridge and use it within 2 weeks.

Andy just knew I'd jump in with that one!

Dice 'em and make an overnight marinade for your chicken. Ta-da! Now you have the next day's meal ready.

You can add them to a salsa or saute a little chopped onion,add chili a bit of cumin and garlic salt and pepper and a pinch of oregano and fill an omelet with the filling with cheddar.or put filling in a quiche with cheddar.Serve quiche with a little salsa on top.
Give me a little time Ive got lots of ideas we buy 3 bushels of roasted green chili evey year and freeze them we eat them in all kinds of ways.
Make a tomato bisque add beef base, cumin, chili powder, garlic, oregano and green chili and you have tomato green chili bisque.

I add them into scrambled eggs or omelets. Put them in taco salad or tacos. Make a quesadilla with the green chiles, onions, and cheese. Place them on hamburgers or hotdogs. Add them to chili.

Mix them into softened cream cheese, spread on tortilla, roll and slice for a tasty snack.
