Hot (Sandia) chile is a smaller variety, which will range from 4-8 inches. The largest Chile comes off during peak season and the smallest comes 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 Lumbre most of the time.
Love them! We will definitely order them again next season. Best surprise we've had in a long time.
Wonderful company to work with. A mistake was made and didn't try to make ME pay for the mistake. They we're polite and gratuitous! I am a customer for ever!
Beautiful peppers! Consistent size and color!
we received our Hatch Green Chile shortly after we ordered it. It was in a box, when opened it was fresh like it just came out of the field. Thank you Hatch Chile.
Loved this for roasting to incorporate into mac & cheese & chile verde
I sent 5 lbs fresh hot green chile peppers to my son in Connecticut He said they were okay but not hot
I myself love the Hot Chilis. They are soo good and fresh. They have a little heat to them but just right.
Did not get the chiles I ordered. I ordered hot chile and received what must be the very mildest. NO CHILE FLAVOR!!! It was a large order and I now have a BUNCH of what looks like green chiles but have no flavor. VERY DISAPIONTED!!!!
I had hatch send the chilies out of state, they arrived in perfect condition exactly when they were supposed to.
Great. Love it
I got the Big Jims, but wanted a bit more of a kick and these chilies are just what I needed in some of the recipes. I tend to mix them up a bit because they are hotter than the Big Jims med hot but not so hot that I cannot handle them. I like them and have gotten them for the last two years. Thank you Hatch Chile Store, I am and will always be a loyal customer.
Please ignore my complaints about the heat from my earlier review. As Elaine explained to me in her email, most of the heat in the Sandia Select variety they ship is in the meat at the top of the pod and in the veins. When I cooked an omelet today using a whole pod, the heat was perfect. The Sandia Select variety has more meat than any other Sandia chile that I have ever tried. This company really does care about customer service and satisfaction. My thanks to Elaine and all her staff for being so patient and helpful. You can expect a larger order from me next year.
My Nephew lives in Missouri and we were in a panic to get him some fresh NM green chile. He likes to roast it himself and we thought we had waited too long to get him some. So, I remembered Hatch and they saved the day once again. Thank you for bring NM to Missouri!!! Gratefully yours,
We received our 25 lb. box of Sandia Chiles, roasted them and started using them right away. We were able to use all of them and there was no waste in the box that we had shipped by UPS land. We absolutely love them! The taste is delicious, not too hot but hot enough. I was a little leery of buying them without being able to sample at least one of them because we find chilis all over the place advertised as being hot or even extra-hot, and they are not hot at all, but these are fantastic. In fact, we ordered another 25 lbs to take us through the winter and into next season. Best deal ever!!!
Good stuff, I love this green chile and have it a couple of times a week. If you follow Facebook find "I am New Mexico" and you will find dozens of chili recipes.
Authentic, delicious Hatch Green Chile!! We live outside of New Mexico, so our chile was shipped to us. Every chile was fresh! We will definitely order again next season!
My family and I were extremely pleased with the chilie we purchased. Great flavor... hatch is the best.
Great peppers! The original order had some damageed peppers and you were more than generous in promptly sending some replacements. Not many companies would be so responsive.
Pepper was del. on time as always , will buy more next season. Really a nice company to do business with!!!!!!!!!!
The chile arrived in a few days. It was still fresh and ready to be roasted. Last time I purchased the frozen chile, which was good but I wanted to save the money and smell the wonderful roasting smells. I don't have an outside grill so I used my broiler pan in my stove. It worked really well and was very quick and easy. I am from Colorado/New Mexico and now live in Indiana. They do not know what green and red chile are. Some areas have authentic Mexican food from Mexico, but no chile! They only make salsa and have no idea what I am talking about. So, thank goodness you deliver fresh New Mexico chile to my neck of the woods.
There were a lot of soft/rotten (8-10 )chiles in my 25lb box. Shipping was super fast.
Great amount of heat and awesome flavor.
Excellent. Great flavor.
