Tips for freezing and storing your hoarded Hatch chiles.
Remember: Roasted chiles freeze better than fresh.
Remove seeds and outer skin of roasted chiles or just grab them roasted from the produce department.
Pack seeded and skinned chiles in a freezer bag with all air removed. The fewer per bag, the better. Don’t overcrowd!
Freeze chiles within 24 hours after packing. Lay flat in the freezer.
When you’re ready to Hatch, thaw and enjoy!
