El Rey Farms -- LA area source for fresh Hatch New Mexico Green Chilis
Attention, LA Chiliheads!
El Rey Farms is continuing its annual tradition of shipping fresh Hatch New Mexico Green Chilis to Los Angeles. I learned about El Rey Farms from Huell Howser's PBS Show.
To place an order for fresh Hatch New Mexico Green Chilis, call
Ordering hours Monday -Friday 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM; Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
You can order the Hatch Chilis by the sack or by the pound. Hatch Green Chilis are available in Mild, Medium, Hot and XHot. If you're a real Chilihead, ask about XXHot and XXXHot.
El Rey Farms delivers the Chilis to La Puente High School (a lot closer than Hatch, New Mexico). Pick up dates are Saturday, August 12; Saturday, August 26; Saturday, September 9 and Saturday, September 16. There may be another date in late September, depending on Mother Nature.
There will be vendors in the parking lot that will roast your Hatch Green Chilis for an extra fee.
Holy cow!! Thanks!! I've been making due with the canned... I just might make the trek down to see those roasters first hand!! Yummm!!! :)
Thanks for the info. I have fond New Mexico memories of buying and roasting chiles by the bushel. My freezer was always stocked with a ready supply for rellenos or chile verde.
Thank goodness I finally found this place! I was getting my green chile shipped to me once in August and once in September from my sister in Santa Fe. Roasting chile is one of my fondest childhood memories. My parents would buy gunny sacks and we the whole family would sit outside in the yard and roast the chile. Then we would peel it and put it in baggies and put it in the freezer.
Now that I do it myself though, I've found that for taste it is much better to put the chiles in the freezer UNPEELED. The taste is better and there's no freezer burn.
