In New Mexico, Christmas Roast simply means both red and green chile mixed together.
The Bueno Christmas Roast variety is a blend of traditional diced green and red chile giving this product more red chile flesh and a slightly sweeter flavor.
Christmas Roast Chile can be used in the same manner as other green chile varieties.
The Chile is flame roasted and flash frozen. Flame-roasting caramelizes the Chile’s natural sugars, enhancing the authentic, hearty, robust Green Chile flavor. Flash-freezing locks in flavor, aroma, nutrients, color, and texture without additives or preservatives. Chile is harvested, flame-roasted, peeled, diced, packed, and flash-frozen in a USDA approved facility,

Green chile is rich in vitamins A, C, B and E as well as being fat and cholesterol free. On average, green chile contains six times the vitamin c of an orange.
