When they’re in the stores we grab a bunch. They freeze quite well too. If it’s not the time of year where they’re really fresh you can get canned chiles here year round. We always have a bunch of these in the pantry.
One easy one that really has a strong flavor of chiles is our Instant Pot carnitas. Using these diced and a jar of salsa verde it turns out really tender. Served on rice or inside mini tortillas as tacos they are fabulous.
There are SO many possibilities. We throw them into easy casseroles for a bit of a kick. Stir them into cream cheese and top bagels with it, or put on top of hamburgers. The possibilities are endless!
You’ll find them at your local store like Albertsons in the beginning of August through the end of September. Hatch chile season is short so grab a bunch and freeze some!
They vary in heat. The hottest part of each one is the inner membrane. If you find mild ones and remove the insides they won’t have a lot of heat at all but great flavor still.
Do you have to peel hatch peppers?
The outer skins are quite thick and firm, nothing you’d want to chew on. If you smoke or blacken the skins and submerge in ice water they should fall right off.
