Yes, like any fresh food, roasted Hatch Green Chile can go bad. Once the chiles are roasted, they need to be refrigerated and typically used within a week to maintain their best flavor and quality.
If you've opened a jar of roasted green chiles, they should be used within 7 days after opening, even if refrigerated.
If you want to extend the life of your roasted green chile, you can freeze them. Properly stored in a freezer-safe container or bag, they can last up to 12 months or more in the freezer.
