  • 12 Hatch green chiles


  • Preheat broiler on HIGH and place a rack 6-8 inches from the element.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Spread the Hatch green chiles out on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place in the oven and broil 6-8 minutes or until blackened, keeping an eye on the chiles.
  • Flip the chiles over with tongs.
  • Return to the oven and broil 5-7 minutes on the second side until blackened.
  • Immediately place a baking sheet of the same size over the chiles and let rest for approximately 15-20 minutes.
  • Peel and seed the chiles. Chop and place into snack-size zipper-top bags and freeze or use in your favorite recipe within 3-4 days.


This roasting method also works for other peppers and chiles.  For best results, use within 3-4 days in your favorite recipe or freeze in small bags or containers up to 4 months.
