Hatch Green Chile Recipes – Our Favorites
New Mexican cuisine is a blend of Spanish, Native American, and Mexican cooking ingredients and culinary techniques. While familiar items like beans, squash, and corn are often used, one of the most popular ingredients is green chile. Cooking with hatch green chile is something every New Mexican is familiar with and the possibilities are endless when you throw in red chile as well. One staple of New Mexican cuisine is red or green chile sauce. This spicy base is used to smother enchiladas, burritos, stuffed sopapillas, and just about anything else you can think of. Roasted green chile is commonly used to top cheeseburgers, stuff into burritos, fry into rellenos (cheese and/or meat stuffed whole chile pods fried in a batter) and made with ground beef and potatoes in stew. Green chile is such a popular part of New Mexico cuisine that it can also be found in desserts, breads, pizzas and more.
