UNLIKE WINE, FROZEN CHILE DOES NOT IMPROVE WITH AGE! When you buy your frozen chile from Chile Traditions, you can be SURE the chile you’re buying was picked, roasted, and frozen during the 2014 season.And it’s pure Hatch. We freeze our chile whole and unpeeled…just like you would in your kitchen. And every container of our chile is Health Department approved. So, how old are the chiles in your grocery store’s freezer? We don’t know. Maybe you should compare for yourself! Come over to our Albuquerque store on Montgomery west of Wyoming in the La Mirada Center and try some…mild, medium, hot, x-hot and xxx-hot. Oh, and if you’re out of town, order here online and we’ll ship it safely in dry ice via 2nd-Day Air! https://www.chiletraditions.com/product/frozen-hatch-green-chile/
