Hot (Sandia) is one of the smaller varieties that we grow. It typically ranges in size from 5-8 inches. Although not quite as meaty as Big Jim or NM-20, Sandia still has a thick wall and is great both chopped and whole.
Sandia is a favorite among chile aficionados as it packs a real punch. It can be used for enchiladas, rellenos, and any other dish that calls for a kick. It is well known for it’s consistent heat, and makes great enchilada sauce. We hand roast all our frozen chile in the traditional New Mexican style then gently peel it by hand. All our frozen chile is packaged in 1lb resealable vacuum packed freezer bags. Frozen is shipped on gel packs and typically delivered less than 36 hours from the time it is taken out of our freezers.
