In the late New Mexican summer, the aroma of roasting chiles begins to permeate New Mexico's air. The roasting's done in big metal rotating bins fired with propane torches at nearly every grocery store and farm across the state. Once each 30-pound sack is blistered black, the often-still-warm chiles are dumped back into a container for peeling or selling whole to patient customers. Yes, you can buy a sack all for yourself, and it's worth it. Find chiles roasting at places like The Fruit Basket and more.
