Tell me you’ve tried hatch green chile recipes of some kind right? If not you’re in for a treat! They are in season and in the stores at the end of July to the beginning of August typically. The flavor is amazing whether you choose mild or very hot! (originally published 7/19)

Whether you use fresh or jarred hatch chilies I guarantee you’ll come back for more.

For the best creamy side dish this green chile rice gets RAVING reviews!

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.

What can I do with hatch chiles?

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!hatch chile recipe

What is the season for hatch chiles?

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!

Are hatch chile peppers hot?

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.
