The classic chile relleno chile with a special place in the hearts of all lovers of Southwestern cuisine, green Anaheim chiles offer just enough heat to bring a mild kick to dishes without overwhelming them. Easy to stuff, roast, or grill, they’re very versatile and a great fresh chile for beginners.
Green Anaheims are the immature variety of this chile. We also offer mature (and generally slightly less spicy) fresh red Anaheim chiles.
Shelf Life: Up to 2 weeks fresh, up to a year frozen.
RECIPES & TIPS
Beyond classic chile rellenos, Anaheims can be used in a variety of South or Central American dishes as well as in Southwest and Tex-Mex cuisine. Try adding them to cornbread and corn puddings, baked potatoes, stews, soups and sauces.
Like poblanos, fresh Anaheim chilies can be easily roasted whole on a grill or gas stove.
