It took my wife and I about 5 hours to clean, roast/sear and peel them.
I agree, although I usually put mine under the broiler for six or seven minutes.

Yikes, I just figured up how much chile I put up this year. About 100 pounds. I did it like the locals do which is very easy. All four grocery stores in this town of 6000 carry chiles by the case and have roasters set up outside the stores. I first bought 3 cases. Go in the store, buy case(s) of chile, go outside, stand in line to get your case roasted, go home, put in freezer bags, cool down, put in freezer. You put the whole roasted chile in the bags. After we saw we were going through the new crop of chilies so fast, I went back for a fourth case. Not having enough freezer space for another case, I canned the fourth case. There was a huge difference in the prep time taken for the chiles to be canned rather than frozen. When frozen and thawed, the charred skins slip right off. When freshly roasted, the skins do not so easily come off. I'm guessing it took under one hour to process the chiles for the freezer and it took about 5 hours to get them canned. A case is 1 1/9 bushel and weighs almost 25 pounds.

Wow, Beth! That's incredible!

Can you share your recipe for green chile sauce? I've been using Rick Bayless' simmered salsa verde recipe, but it's really time-consuming.

Sure GG. I have 5 cookbooks on chiles and/or New Mexican cooking and the procedures are similar, just the amount of ingredients vary. But I found a recipe on line recently that is currently my favorite, because it calls for so much garlic! It is a recipe for green chile enchiladas but I use the recipe for the green chile sauce by itself. Making green chile sauce should not be time consuming.

And here is a photo of my frozen chiles.

Thanks, Beth! That sounds great.

Look at all those chiles! You moved to NM from Ohio, right? Have you always been a chilehead?

Yes I moved here 2 1/2 years ago from Ohio. I had never heard of chiles before I moved here. When I first saw them, I called them banana peppers. Wrong. Having married into the Spanish culture, I have studied the food culture here and it has taken me a while to get the hang of it. DH likes to have pinto beans and chiles every day. Here is a typical breakfast; sausage patty, pintos, mess of greens, chile and the photo was taken before the fried egg was placed on top of the pintos. I used to think chile was chili; the tomato based beef and kidney bean soup. Chili and chili powder are unknown here.
