   Roast the chiles and peppers by the Open-Flame Method.
   Peel the chiles and peppers, pull off the stems,
   remove the seeds and veins, and set aside.
   In a medium saucepan, parboil the potatoes in boiling
   water with 1 teaspoon of the salt until tender.
   Puree the green chiles and then the red peppers
   separately in a food processor until smooth.  Mix the
   purees together, add the potatoes and stock, and
   process in 2-cup batches for another minute, or until
   smooth. Add the remaining salt, the pepper, and garlic
   and process again. Press the puree through a fine
   sieve. Heat the puree in a saucepan. Serve hot,
   garnished with tumbleweed greens.
