I found some Hatch chiles at one of the local stores a couple of weeks ago and roasted them on the outdoor grill. I found this recipe and used it. I didn't deseed the peppers and this stew was so hot I had to make another batch with NO peppers and mix the two together. If you have visited my kitchen before you know we LOVE heat. But damn it was over kill. My recommendation is to taste the roasted pepper before using to see how hot they are. If necessary use fewer peppers or get all of the seeds out. This was an AMAZING stew and I hope you'll give it a try. You could also use the canned, chopped green chiles but it won't be quite as flavorful as the fresh Hatch chiles make this stew.
