Yes, they are easily frozen in several different ways. You should wash them well and dry them completely. If you want to keep the seeds, you can freeze them whole, or you can slice the stem off, remove the seeds, and freeze them. You may also chop them before freezing. Whenever you freeze them, you should use a vacuum-sealed bag to prolong their life and reduce the risk of freezer burn.

Some people prefer to blanch their Anaheim peppers before freezing. Simply boil them for 2-3 minutes, and then submerge them in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Allow them to cool and dry completely before freezing, or else the moisture will turn to freezer burn quickly.
