Roast them, grill them, stuff them, smother them — however you decide to prepare your green chile, I hope you enjoy them to the fullest. Being that it’s green chile season I thought I’d share some of my favorite Hatch/green chile recipes with you below. From appetizers to sides to main dishes you can’t go wrong with the addition of this fruit (not vegetable) to any meal.
These peppers are vibrant in color and pack an extreme amount of flavor in every bite. Afraid they might be too spicy or hesitant to make them because you’re unsure how? Watch my video on How to Roast Chile Peppers and give them a try.
The distinctive aroma of roasted chiles from mid-August to early October kicks off the autumn season for Southwestern food lovers.
