Way back in January, we read an article about hatch chiles -- the beautiful New Mexico chiles that are only available for a short time in late summer every year. We'd been dying to try them anyway, so we placed an order via Berridge Farms.
And then we forgot about it.
That it, until some eight months later, when on August 3rd we received an email: "Chiles are ready to ship this week."
And sure enough, there they came, a massive box of hatch chiles. We could smell them as soon as we entered the house. We tore into the box ready to get to cooking.
