As Scott reminded me, I did not order any chiles. I was actually feeling that I had way too many last year and I needed a break. But I just looked back over comments from last year and found Scott’s suggestions about chile varieties.
In the future you might consider other, more flavorful, New Mex chile varieties such as: Hatch (“supreme” or “big jim”) or Espanola Improved… big jim is the local favorite but I prefer the supreme.
Maybe I’ll order one package of seeds ….. just to try these. Here’s a link to a company in New Mexico that sells Big Jim (but not Supreme – Every time I google “Chile Supreme” I find out what Chile’s supreme court is up to).
