Fresh Roasted Chile Peppers at Crooked Sky Farms

The past few weekends, Crooked Sky Farms has been bringing fresh chile peppers to roast right at the market! Come grab a bag while these peppers are in perfect season! They have either mild or hot chile peppers, and always roast them right on site. Today I wanted to share with you all some pictures from the market and recipe inspiration with the peppers.

chile pepper recipe inspiration:

to savor the flavor of these delicious chile peppers at their peak season, I decided to make a salsa that I could freeze and have for months after. The recipe for the salsa is the exact same measurments and as my Homemade Salsa Verde. The only difference is that instead of using jalapeño peppers, you simply use the hot chile peppers. You can purchase all the other ingredients for this salsa right at Crooked Sky Farms. You’ll need tomatillos, white onion, garlic, cilantro, and of course the mild or hot chiles.

mild chile pepper, corn, and cheese tacos

  1. wash and remove the seeds from mild chile peppers
  2. fry the peppers in a pan with some oil on medium heat
  3. cook an ear of corn (I used Crooked Sky Farms peaches and cream corn)
  4. add a layer of the hot chile salsa to the bottom of tortillas
  5. add the mild chile peppers and corn
  6. add cheddar cheese and enjoy with more salsa on the side!
  7. I also added some nutritional yeast on top for some more protein 🙂
