Its that time of the year when the air fills with the wonderful scent of roasted New Mexico green chile. Fruit stands, roadside vendors, grocery stores and even Walmart has a chile roaster in the parking lot.
While Hatch is best known for the chile in New Mexico, there are many wonderful fields around the state. For me its the backyard that produces the fresh green treats. This year I planted roughly twenty plants which have been producing and producing starting around the first of the month. Here are some picture of the latest roasting on the grill.
