The Green Chili is the taste you'll find in many mild or spicy New Mexican dishes, from the Chili Relleno to the Green Chile sauce on Enchiladas.
We were in Santa Fe during the time of the Green Chili Harvest. And in parking lots and roadsides throughout Santa Fe, we saw farmers with truckloads of Green Chilis roasting them on the spot for eager customers.
The propane-fueled roasters pictured below blast hot air into the rotating drums, and the chilis pop and crackle as they roast.
They are mild, moist, and delicious when eaten straight from the roaster, though most people bought 20 pounds bags (about $16 bucks each) to take home.
