I might order some fresh ones this upcoming season. They seem to be available in different heat levels. Will probably roast and can most of them and enjoy some while fresh.

I bet the frozen ones are better.

The Whole Foods in Virginia Beach apparently flew in some fresh ones last year and roasted them in front of the store.

Well, GG, IMHO, the frozen chiles don't have that same "meatiness" as fresh, roasted or even canned. I suppose it's some sort of reaction.
I think I'm going to search for a farm that might be able to join this conversation...

Of course fresh would be best. I find that frozen veggies in general are superior to canned, but I suppose there could be exceptions.

GG, I liked the roasted and frozen that I found at TJ's with one exception...the package was loaded with seeds. I'll check Walmart if they have the frozen here. They would have served my wants with that exception. That's why I'm thinking with the canned whole roasted I could remove the seeds myself.

Reviving a resting thread about hatch chiles.

Well, I had really wanted to try some. First we searched out 3 farmers at a market and ended up with poblanos and half sharp banana peppers. Blackened them over a flame, peeled, seeded, stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon. Delicious.

Then the second time I made them I roasted them in the broiler. Peeled and seeded them but they lost so much body, I wasn't thrilled with that.They were limp and difficult to stuff and so after stuffing them I froze them. I half cooked the bacon. Then took them out of the freezer, wrapped them in the half cooked bacon and then baked them to perfection. They were delicious. Banana peppers and poblanos have different flavors, the poblanos were much more 'green peppery', both were medium hot.

I much prefer working with the blackened over a flame pepper. They are easier to clean and to handle.

Finally, DH, after reviewing google images of hatch, Anaheim, and banana peppers, went shopping and found Anaheim peppers, FINALLY. We are in the Northern US, so I've never heard of hatch, nor had a conversation about them, up here. In over 50 years of cooking, potlucks, eating out, cooking at home, even teaching my kids when they were youngsters, how to cook, international food fests--no one has ever mentioned hatch chilies. Ever.

I'll roast them and stuff them and wrap them in bacon. I'm so glad to finally have the chance to give these a try. I took a snippet of one of them, and it tasted pretty sweet, I liked it.

hatch chiles are now available locally in Houston and I'd guesstimate in the south as a whole.......the local grocery stores will prepare them any way you want them (grilled, etc.) or you can take them home fresh.....now is the time to buy them if you want them fresh.........as we like HIGH HEAT in any of our peppers, I would not rate hatch chiles as hot at all......it's the flavor that's nice, but you're asking a person who likes really, really spicy/hot.........

I saw fresh hatch chilies at my local store yesterday. Medium and medium large sizes. ( note to Steve K who likes chillies, it was Lunds-Byerly.) Never seen these available here before. Although they could have been and I probably passed them over thinking they were banana peppers. So I'm glad to see this thread pop up and I will pick some up to try.

Like other peppers I have done, I can blister the skins on the charcoal grill. I think I will make a bean cheese onion stuffing and wrap in bacon to finish. I should probably go back through the posts and see if there are recipes, since my idea is kind of free floating.

Hy-Vee and Fresh Thyme have them, too. Believe it or not, I even see them in Cub now and again.
