Product Description

Hot, (Sandia), chile is a smaller variety which will range from 4-8 inches with the largest Chile coming off during peak season and the smallest coming off during the early and late season pickings. This is a straight hot variety that is a favorite among chile veterans. It can be used for enchiladas, rellenos, and most very spicy things you can think of. Sandia is one of our family’s favorites along with Big Jim. Typically, Sandia is more than hot enough for most chile lovers and has a great blend of flavor and heat. While not as thickly meated as Big Jim, it is significantly meatier than Barker and Lumbre.

    I lived in NM for 7 years and my husband and I really miss the chile. So I started ordering online to be delivered to my home in North Carolina. My order this year came with some problems and Berridge Farms re sent my order immediately ! I received the new box in two days! Communication is excellent and the chiles were wonderful! I highly recommend them for ordering online. They really stand by their product. You won’t be sorry.

    The Hatch Chile Store had the best price this year that I found for early orders of bulk green chile. About 9 families here in Oregon got together an ordered Big Jim (125lbs) and Sandia (25lbs)… Preston worked with me on timing our shipment and I received the chile right on schedule! The pods are lush, meaty, and BIG! I was impressed and that is what I’ve heard from the other folks also. I’ve found a new favorite vendor for my green chile shipments! Thank God for green chile and for The Hatch Chile Store!

    This is the 3rd year I have ordered from The Hatch Chile Store and will never go anywhere else. My dad who lives in Santa Fe told me about The Hatch Chile Store, and they have the best Chile around. Thank you all!

    We ordered late in the 2010 season and the mix of red & green chile was so attractive. But the best was that the pods were fresh and VERY fleshy, and the Sandia heat was perfect… My husband and I are native New Mexicans who transplanted ourselves about 10 years ago to the Oregon Coast. We are now comforted to know we have a year’s supply of NM green chile in the freezer to take us through winter/spring when the area gets 6 feet of rain!

    We just received our ten pound box of chilies on Thursday. On Friday afternoon, they were on the grill: a beautiful thing! The chilies arrived in great shape, fresh and perfect. They are truly delicious: a good amount of heat, with a very rich, full flavor, and NOTHING like the comparatively thin-tasting chilies we find at our local farmer’s market (in Minnesota). Worth every penny. Great product, great service.

    I received the most wonderful 25lb box of green chili from you. No longer living in the southwest, green chili is in short supply. As we roasted the chili’s, it smelled just like fall in New Mexico – just like fall should be. The flavor was great, and I used your relleno recipe and it was a huge hit with my family. So far, I think we have had green chili with every meal! Thank you so much, the chili arrived exactly when you said it would.

    Last year we went to New Mexico and loved the cuisine–we were told the good taste was from the ‘Hatch chili’. When we got home, we searched for a source for a good Hatch chili, both locally and online. We found Berridge Farms and ordered 25 pounds of the medium Big Jims. We were a little apprehensive because the price last year was about $77 with shipping. This was $3 a pound!!!. We got them, roasted them, ate some and ordered another 25 pounds just prior to the season being over. These are the best chili’s in the world!. We know that they are ‘just Anaheim’s’, but, really, they are not. Being grown in Hatch imparts a distinct flavor to them, something we have never gotten any place else. We just ordered another 25 pounds for 2008. We did not order 50 pounds cause we have some left in the freezer. 37 pounds is about our yearly usage (2 people).

    The best. If not happy give Preston an e-mail or call. He will make it good. Have known him for ten years or more and placed many orders for New York, Idaho and Florida. Never missed. Preston, see u at chile fest again this year. George

    Lived in the SW and cried when I was forced to move. Eating at Mexican Restaurants just didn’t cut it since it didn’t taste like home. Then the clouds parted and I discovered the Chile Store under a different name at the time. Friendly people, A great website and best of all WONDERFUL CHILES that were so easy to obtain. If you miss the taste of home or just a great taste, you owe it to yourself to place an order. I roast mine under my broiler in my condo. My home and the entire building smells great and I’ve never had so many hungry friends.

    After talking with the folks at The Hatch Chili Co about my order not being up to par, they are resending my order. That what I call service!!

    This is my third year ordering and had some problems, somewhere FEDEX left the box in the rain, then both boxes were “stomped ” by some cretin totally mashing the Chilies! Preston reshipped another 50 lbs of really fat Sandia’s ,which are now perfectly roasted and in my freezer! Customer Service LIVES at the Hatch Chile Store!

    Our first box of Sandias were mishandled by FedEx but they were replaced immediately. Roasted them yesterday and we are now watching football with some awesome queso. Thanks!

    It’s impossible to live in New Mexico for any period of time and not get hooked on Hatch chiles. They’re also hard to find elsewhere, so I took a chance and ordered ten pounds of Sandias. I was happily surprised to receive big, gorgeous, scrumptious chiles. Excellent customer service — I won’t hesitate to order again. Thanks!
