    Chile roasting at Harmon's

    One of the greatest things about mid to late-August is the yearly arrival of chile roasting at Harmon's grocery stores.

    The past year of having a good supply of Hatch New Mexico green chile has been great. Green Chile Apple Pie with Cheddar Crust and Walnut Streusel, green chile enchiladas, huevos rancheros, and green chile stew have been great this year. The enchiladas and pie being the best of the bunch. I was a little too judicious and had some left, but that just means that I can make more over the next year.

    I highly recommend picking up a bushel. I'll be getting mine today.

    So I said to David Eckstein, "You promised me, Eckstein, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there have only been one set of prints in the sand. Why, when I have needed you most, have you not been there for me?" David Eckstein replied, "Because my little legs had gotten tired, and you were carrying me." And I looked down and saw that I was still carrying David Eckstein.

    Chile Verde this week! Just make a big batch, and smother everything with it!
    What is your go-to recipe for chile verde/green chile. This recipe with a few modifications is my favorite.

    Having someone roast it makes a huge difference. You get a great char on it, tons of flavor, and getting the skin off is much easier. I love that Harmons does this every year. I'm heading out to get my chiles in about an hour and am really excited. I'll actually have a nice 45 minute drive with the smell of the roasted chiles.

    Mashed potatoes and turkey that is brilliant. This stuff is pretty much good on anything. That will pair well with the apple-green chile pie with cheddar crust and walnut streusel that I'll be making for Thanksgiving this year.

    Chile Verde on fried eggs is my favorite.

    Muchas gracias. I am planning on hacking this pie thing up, along with some chile verde. I'm deep frying a turkey for Thanksgiving, and we're gonna use the verde for gravy, and then we are going to battle the Gaucho's Revenge all weekend!

    I don't expect the Gaucho's Revenge to require any fire department assistance, but you never know!

    Actually, I purchased one of them Butterball turkey fryer dealios a couple of years ago. I only did so after painstaking research, which consisted of watching the infomercial in its entirety at least six times. But I didn't purchase from the infomercial. No way. I ain't no sucker. I bought mine on a whim at the Costco.

    I've deep fried more than a few turkeys over the last couple of years. Deep fried turkey is ridiculous. I love it. And I love cholesterol. And high blood pressure medication.

    Senioritis how did you like the apple-green chile pie?

    There is no way the pie should have been as good as it was. We've taken to calling it the Dirty Apple. We've made it twice more. It's so strange, but irresistibly delicious, like Rich Rodriguez.

    I've also slapped down this verde recipe a couple of times: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/p...ipe/index.html

    Whoooo boy!!

    I am a Hatch chile addict. It's not healthy. Every single thing I cook with them ends up being glorious, and I can't stop. I'll put them in anything, like Ocean Spray does with cranberries.

    Doing another batch of chile verde on Saturday. My woman is making the green chile Apple pie for dinner on Sunday. I am starting a collection of shiny blue rocks. I expect a trans am is next, and then an increase in back hair and a meth addiction.

    I love love you New Mexico!

    Harmons is quite the grocery store chain. It's the little things about how they present their products, their specialties, even their bathrooms. They have some quality people working for them. I'm not joking. They cook those chilis up downtown and have lunch specials. The burrito they make is killer.

    I just wish I could get everything I want there. There's been several items I initially bought there only to have them suddenly vanish. At least twice employees have told my wife or I that a product has been discontinued and that's why we can't get it. We're still buying those products from other stores in town.
