Wegman's Green Chile Roast - Fairfax

We got some chile to roast ourselves - but they were roasting outside as well. Said they would do this through the weekend.

Being from NM - smells like autumn to me.

I thank them for doing this!

          Potomac?? There is a Wegman's in Potomac? Please - reveal the secret location!!!! I'd LOVE to have one in MoCo!!!

            I'm thinking that might be Potomac as in Potomac Mills in Woodbridge. (They call this location "Wegmans Potomac".) The closest to Potomac, MD is probably Fairfax or Sterling...

      2. The Fresh Market in Annapolis is having their "Hatch Chili Festival" tomorrow as well.

        1. Thanks for the notice, I've been waiting for them to appear locally!!!

            Well, forget that. I went out to Wegman's Fairfax today, and was told, "oh, we did that already, they're all gone". Phooey.

              Sorry, I got 2 cases from the Potomac store and they are all packed in the freezer (except for the ones that made Rellenos for Sunday Dinner...

                I saw a big bin of hatch chiles at Harris Teeter last week, but you'll have to roast them yourself. Are Wegman's better?

                  Wegmans will roast them for you - You could roast them yourself, but if doing more than a few you'll really want a drum roaster like they have. I made the mistake once of buying a case of fresh peppers and using my BBQ to roast them - It took hours, and the final product wasn't as good because of the lack of Constant turning. I'll never buy un-roasted again!
