New Mexico (Green)

Also knows as the long green chile. Pale to medium green, tapered, and measuring between 6 to 9 inches long and about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Medium fleshed; varies considerably in strength from medium to very hot. The flavor is unlike that of any other chile in North America: sweet and earthy, with a clarity that seems to reflect the skies and landscapes of New Mexico. It is hotter and has a clearer, more cutting chile flavor than the Anaheim. It is available fresh almost year-round, although anyone who has been to Santa Fe in the fall knows that these chiles are roasted in huge quantities at that time of year when the bulk of the crops is in. They freeze well, and frozen New Mexico green chiles are better than canned. The New Mexico green is excellent in green chile sauces, stews, and salsas, stuffed (rellenos), and as rajas. Try them roasted and peeled in sandwhiches. In most cases, you can substitute a mixture of Anaheims and roasted jalapenos if the New Mexico greens are unavailable.
