About New Mexico green chile Edit
The fresh non-ripened New Mexico chile. A type of chile pepper that is about a half-foot in length, is green in color, and has a mild to medium-hot flavor. It is similar to its descendant the California chile, but it is a bit hotter. It is sold fresh and is also available roasted, dried, or canned. When the chile is dried, it turns a dark burgundy color. It is sometimes referred to as a dried Anaheim Chile. New Mexico chiles are a good complement to egg dishes, stews, and vegetable dishes.
