    Alright!! The local FFA kids are roasting and sellin green chili's again ,its a yearly fundraiser and they sell only the best green chili in the world. I know this ,cause it comes from Hatch,N M which is the clili capitol of the world. If any one has ever been within 100 feet of a fresh steaming roasting cage full of long green you know just how wonderfull the aroma is MMMMMMM,makes ya mouth water.Anyway last nite I bought a bushel of mild ,for my wuss,I mean wife and a bushel of hot for myself,Then this morning went and bought another bushel of extra hot.Maybe I will have enough to last a full year,seems we run out by early spring hehehe.

    I am only guessing here, don't know for sure. If you have and use that much of those wonderful chilies, I am sure you might have some decent recipes. Esp. deer chili or a white chili using turkey. If they are not diff. for you to write down here I would be interested. If that is not your forte have your wonderful Missus help us out. Thanks John

    Thanks Richard.

    My wife's been fixing Chili Rellano for many years. Her recipe is similar to your's but she uses store bought canned green chili's. I bet the roasted ones does make it better! But we don't live close to the green chili country any more.

    So how do they roast them?

    You're killin me .223!! I used to live in Las Cruces, NM where I ate a steady diet of chile. I would give a leg for a bushel of hot green chiles. Next year I'm, ordering seeds from the NMSU chile institute.

    Off the subject of chili, unless you are going to use them in chili. Those nice turkeys you are holding in your avatars. I know down your way you have different strains. Are they Eastern, Merriams, Goulds or Rio Grande? Or do you have all kinds locally? John

    Went with a bud up the Blue river sunday & come across some good ole boys camped up the bank with the full setup. They had chow & I mean CHOW. They weren't fooling. (Insert banjo music here.) They had 2 stoves, 2 cookers, and a fire going. They came to eat. Well I thought I done died an gone back to the farm. All home grown; green beans, corn, maters, taters, deep fried critters, fritters, & someone had even brought nanner pudding.
    And off to the side on a cooker with deep red sause, ask what it were....wings. Well I come up with a leg, I'm a lucky guy right? The guy who made this was a volunteer fireman. (Insert merry ouchy music here.)
    First time I've smiled with tears running down my cheeks since my son was born. Whew!

    Boy Howdy! Had a friend give me a bag of assorted peppers the other day. Some Japs., some chilis. Tonite, I made some burritos, and decided to put some little red (I assume japs.?) on there. I cut into one, and smelled it. It smelled sweet like a bell pepper, so I popped a piece in my mouth. It tasted sweet for about 1/10th of a second, then my mouth caught fire! I've eaten habaneros whole, so they top my scale at 10. On a scale of 1 to 10, these come in at about a 6, but with a very pleasant flavor. I'm eating the burritos right now, and they are very tasty. Mixed in, they deliver a runny nose, and on the verge of a sweat on the brow. Not sure what they are, but I like!!! They are shaped like a small jalepino, and are red. Any clue what they might be?

    Not sure ,Mat . They may be eitherPiquines or maybe Serranos,my serranos never grow as big as the ones in the store and they look like small jalapenos.
