Anyone know where to find Hatch chili's in the DC area?

Santa Fe cafe in Arlington, VA is closing. Does anyone know any other restaurants in the DC area that source Hatch chili's?

  1. You JUST missed the run of Hatch Chiles at local stores, although you may want to call them just in case:

    1. I'm afraid I just missed them a couple of weeks ago, oh well.

      1. Freshmarket in Vienna had them last weekend, cheap too, about $2/lb.

        1. The Wegman's in Columbia MD had a TON of them (both fresh and in prepared foods) last weekend but I don't know if they still do.

          1. they have them at Whole Foods. At least, the one on P street has them by the peppers - $1.99/lb (which is actually a good deal).

            Even though I was out of town, I split a case of already roasted ones with a coworker who is bringing them in bit by bit. I just eat them plain. So good.

              Wish I had gotten some. I used to peel, chop and freeze them. Makes for a very good soup base in the winter!

                grab some at whole foods and roast them - $1.99/lb! My coworker, who is from New Mexico, says you can order them online as well but they are more expensive.

                Yes! Thank you Jeserf, I found them as you suggested at Whole Foods Foggy Bottom on Tuesday night for $1.99/lb, I bought a pound, roasted, peeled, chopped, and looking forward to enjoying them in salsa's and enchilada's over the fall/winter months.

                  i'm glad they're still available, 'cause that is a good idea to prep and freeze.

              3. oh sad to hear santa fe is closing…kip is a nice guy, but has been there for a good long run. fare well, kip. happy retirement.

                ps, i haven't seen the hatch chiles in a couple of weeks…what chiles i did see were at harris teeter.
