Grown in Hatch Valley, New Mexico, Hatch Chiles have a unique and smoky heat flavor that is incomparable to any other pepper. Cool nights and hot days along the Rio Grande make for perfect growing conditions. Available for just a limited time, these chiles are planted in April then harvested in August and September. An earthier flavor than similar peppers, once roasted, they take on a buttery-like flavor. Hatch chiles are especially delicious on burgers, in enchiladas, chopped up and mixed with cream cheese for a spicy spread, added to guacamole and much more!
