New Mexico Gal, Here!

Hello, my name is Deyshia, I live in New Mexico. I am sort of a experimental cook. I love to cook with green chili. If you dont't know about green chili, you should. I am not sure how fast this forum is, but I am looking forward to hearing and tasting everyones ideas.

Hey, Barbie, welcome to DC I love chiles and am always looking for new recipes. By green chili, do you mean jalapenos, or something else? My DH and I grew tomatillos for the first time this year - they were a spectacular success. I have lots of green salsa in the freezer for making pork chile verde this winter. Looking forward to your contributions.

Welcome!!!
I grew up in New Mexico! All my family still lives there, so we go bak regularly. My mom just came up to visit for a few days and brought me some green chile. yum! Are they still out roasting?
Where do you live? We have another member, jpmcgrew, she lives in Raton.

Whoohoo! I'm so excited to have another New Mexican on the forum!

Thanks for the welcomes, guys. To the jalapeno question; green chili is very different from jalapenos. I am sure the other NM ppl would agree. It is one of the most wonderful flaovors in the world. Now that it is October, the streets are filled with the sweet aroma of Hatch Green Chili. :lickslips:

Aint that the truth I just bought 3 large burlap bags of the medium heat and of course had them roasted on the spot.The smell of green chile roasting is the best.

Hi. Is it the New Mexico green chile on this page? Fresh Chile Peppers. Amazingly enough, I think that's one of the peppers we grew in our garden in Virginia this past summer I'll post a photo later when I get home. What do you like to do with it?

Google HATCH CHILE and you will find everything you need to know what carazon, jpmcgrew and barbiedawl are talking about.

If you ever eat in a restaurant in New Mexico, and a waitress asks you if you want green or red sauce on anything, be aware that, unique to New Mexico, green sauce is hotter than red.

I will tell you what, do you like soup? Cream of chicken soup? Put some green chili in it. I have a personal recipe if you would like to have it. I believe the term for green chili is "long Jim" in growing it. I am not sure how it would work, but I just bought 35 lbs of green chili at the Farmers Market here in Albuquerque, peeled it and froze most of it (gave the rest to the homeless shelter). If you would like, I can mail you some. But like I said, I am not sure how it will work.
