My Mom was nice enough to host the first annual chile peeling party on what turned out to be a beautiful Saturday afternoon. When Georgia and I arrived with our 20 bucks we were surprised to see what an event this truly was. The table outside was set up with individual chile peeling stations! We each had a tray of chile, a bowl of ice water and a cozy chair. Together with my Mom, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, aunt, uncle and cousins, we peeled 4 sacks of New Mexico’s finest. My auntie Sue made her famous chile rellenos to snack on while we worked and we ended the night grilling up some amazing green chile cheese burgers. All and all, it was a great night and I would have to say that I did feel pretty grown-up as I tucked my chile safely away in the freezer when I got home. Thanks Mom.
