We only have one here. I find stuff to be a bit more expensive than Walmart, but the store is clean and well laid out. Also quite popular.

I don't peel chiles if I'm going to stuff them. Like you found out, it removes too much structural integrity. I love stuffed chiles, poblanos, jalapeņos, Anaheim type chiles (whether New Mexico Hatch or Colorado grown, they are equally good).

I agree. I stuffed some anaheims and a green pepper without peeling them for dinner late last night. I was too hungry to wait and do the extra work of peeling them. The anaheims were warm, heat wise. I really enjoyed the heat level, not too hot. I've had jalapenos that were too hot for my taste but other jalapenos that were just right. What a fun food peppers/chiles have been to prepare and eat.

Those of you that are stuffing should really try what Craig discovered. He uses a hand-held torch (like you'd buy at Home Depot) and chars the skin. Whenever he does chiles or peppers with the torch (versus oven broiler), they are stlil very firm and retain their structure and "meatiness," but you are able to peel them. Even my little mini kitchen torch for things like creme brulee does the same, though it takes a lot longer to do and doesn't char the skin quite as well as the full-size hand-held.

Hatch chile season in winding down here. I nearly had heart failure this morning when I went to get my 6th (!) case of chiles. The roasters were gone. I went in and hesitantly asked the grocer if chile season was over. He said no, but stores in Taos will only be getting one more shipment of cases of chiles, at the end of the week. Here we can get chiles with 4 heat levels; mild, medium, hot and extra hot. At this point in his chile eating life, DH can only tolerate the mild heat.

Yet another cooking toy! Great idea though.

I have a gas stove, I roast them right on the burner, standing there with my tongs to turn them.

I love having a propane torch, when my yet-to-be husband, shot a deer, took the hide off, he was pleasantly surprised that 'his girl' carried this most important equipment. It is used to burn off the hair from the flesh. And to caramelize sugar.
