Hatch Green Chile Ice Cream


  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Vanilla Beans – split lengthwise
  • 8 Hatch Green Chile, roasted, peeled and seeded, then diced
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract (spring for the good stuff!)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts of your choice


1. In a saucepan, scald the milk, cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, vanilla bean (pod and seeds) and half the Hatch Chiles, stirring constantly.

2. In a small bowl, whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until smooth like a ribbon. Pour some of the scalded liquid into the egg and mix well. Add that back to the scalded liquid in the saucepan and cook over low heat until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

3. Strain mixture into a bowl and add the vanilla extract.

4. Place the mixture in the refrigerator and chill completely.   Place in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufactures directions.  

5. When it’s about half frozen, about 10 minutes into the process, add in the remaining Green Chile, diced very fine. Enjoy the Hatch Green Chile Ice Cream!

Optional: Add cooked, crumbled Hatch Green Chile Bacon! Trust us - it works.
