In Texas, Hatch season is pretty much a local holiday—the local Central Markets have plenty of Hatch specials and we are here to help with culinary creations when you arrive home with a surplus of chiles! We’ve rounded up some classics and a few twists!
It may still be hot out, but this slow-cooker Hatch pepper chili from The View From Great Island is exactly what we’re craving. This chili is perfect for the summer months when fresh Hatch chiles from Texas are readily available, or make a double batch and freeze some to revisit come fall.
This Hatch chile salsa from Food and Wine replaces the acidity of ketchup with just enough heat to keep things interesting. Smothered between two burger patties and cozied up with melty cheese and fluffy buns, this will be a total hit at your summer cookout!
This healthy Mexican breakfast casserole from Lively Table calls for green chiles, but when Hatch chiles are in season, swapping them in is a must! Mingled with black beans, street corn, and of course fluffy tortillas, this dish is easy to make, so flavorful, and can even be prepped ahead.
There’s no match for Hatch (mac and cheese)! This ultra cheesy recipe from I Am A Food Blog balances the spice of the pepper just right, and of course pairs well with a crisp vino!
Hatch chile cheesecake?! Nope, that’s not a typo. We have treasured this dessert for years from Central Market and love the topping, too. The strawberry jam-like chutney gives this classic dessert just the kick of spice it deserves, Texas-style, of course.
These Hatch green chile biscuits from Central Market come with a homemade jalapeño pimento cheese spread. Good for practically any meal and any time of day.
