Cooking with Kief and Hash

Cooking with Kief and Hash

Hash and Kief

Use decarboxylated Kief or Hash to medicate this recipe.  Find more information on how to make and cook with kief and hash at this link.

Roasting Chiles

You can use canned green chiles, or roast your own.  If you want to roast your own chiles, here are several methods. Place washed and dried green chiles:

  • directly over the flame of a gas stove
  • on a charcoal or propane grill over high heat
  • under a boiler

In all cases use tongs to turn peppers frequently until blackened on all sides. Place hot roasted chiles in a closed paper bag for 10 minutes. When you remove them you will be able to easily peel with your fingers. Remove seeds and stems (sounds familiar), chop and use in recipes.

A note about the Dosing on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 80 mg THC per serving IF you used decarboxylated average kief (40% THC).  To adjust the dosage up or down for your personal needs, and to reflect the strength of the kief you are cooking with, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to use the handy dosage calculator tool on this page.
