Flamethrowers are fried green chile. Years ago I found a recipe in an issue of Chile Pepper Magazine (August 2001) named Texas Flamethrowers with Dipping Sauce. It has become one of the first things I make when we get our roasted chile in August, and best when the chile is big and meaty and fresh. I changed the dipping sauce up a bit to fit our taste buds but otherwise it tastes the same as the original. This recipe is so simple and easy, yet they disappear as fast as you can make them. I had to threaten some people in order to take pictures first.
