Hatch Chili

This is my favorite time of year. It is starting to get a little colder and the hatch chili stands line Federal here in Denver. All you do is pull into one of these road side stands and pick your chili. They usually have around 10 different kinds. They then load them in a giant propane tumbler and roast them to order. They put the roasted chilli's in a giant plastic bag and send you on your way. The smell is the best part, earthy and sweet. You can freeze the peppers and have them all through the winter. My favorite is putting them on flat bread with scrambled eggs, caramelized onions and siracha.

Thanks for the visual memory. It reminds me of my days in Santa Fe. Those hatch green chiles are the best. There's nothing better for a hang-over than a hot bowl of New Mexican green chile stew.
