Author Notes

after my sister-in-law in New Mexico sent us 30 lbs of hatch green chiles, we had to cook them up and roast the rest asap. the 1st night we made rellanos and a version of these pancakes, which was in a co-op leaflet from New Mexico Chile people. i didn't think to check the heat level of the individual chiles and so some of them were very mild and some were quite nuclear. i've fooled around with this recipe and they are delicious with a salad or as a side with meats. if you don't like hot foods, get the mild poblano or big jim chiles, or even red bell peppers--but Hatch are our very favorite if you can get them. —msgruvn
