Long Greens, to be exact.
This is the time of year in New Mexico, that the incredible smell of roasting green chiles fills the air. Every grocery store and most parking lots in town have large roasting baskets set up with burners going hot! They pour the chiles in and turn them over and over to roast all sides of each chile. YUM!
We took 30 pounds of chiles up to our friends in Laramie, Wyoming this past weekend. They had requested them and we were happy to oblige!
Above is a plate of freshly roasted chiles from the grill - almost tooo much!!!! Just "peel and eat"
Below, we made pizza - and the guys ended up with chopped chiles all over theirs.
We each had our own pizza to "decorate" with toppings....The guys put theirs on the grill to "toast"....
It was soooooo yummy! It was a "blustery" evening sitting outside, so we ate pretty fast. Still, it was pretty nice.
