Green chile sauce in England

I made a New Mexico style green chilli sauce using roasted Anaheim chillis and a garlic/onion base. Delicious! I lived in New Mexico for 25 years and was especially pleased to have the aroma of roasted chillis in the house. Next year we will try growing our own in the greenhouse from SDCF seedlings. The picture shows the sauce we made.

So nice to find hatch chilli's in the UK, roasted and used in the best Chili Verde I have made in a long time

Big Jims

Love the Big Jims! Having lived in New Mexico in the past I developed a love for these. I've also grown the Sandia variety which is hotter and not quite as large. Roasted and peeled then made into stew/sauce with pork loin, garlic, onions and a few potatoes it can be used on many different dishes. Smother a burrito!!!

Excellent as usual

Deliveed on time.
Great taste...I cooked them stuffed with cheeses and mash
