Authentic New Mexican Hatch Chiles’ are a favorite Southwestern Chile. These chiles’ are named after the original growing area in Hatch, New Mexico. No other chile is prized more than this variety which grows in the Hatch Valley, just north of Las Cruces. Chefs say that the intense sunlight and cool nights in this valley result in a uniquely flavored chile. The valley, which stretches along the Rio Grande’s southern-most bend before crossing into Texas and Mexico, is covered with row after row of these green leafy chile plants for most of the summer.

Hatch Chiles’ have a meaty flesh and mild-medium heat making them ideal for use in Chile Con Queso, Chile Rellenos, and Chile Verde. But, don’t stop there…try roasting and using them in salads, soups, stews, dips, and sandwiches. And, for even more great ideas on how to use them, purchase a copy of Melissa’s Hatch Chile Cookbook.

Melissa’s Hatch Chiles’ are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose bright green, glossy peppers that are firm with medium to thick flesh. Avoid soft spots. Refrigerate, unwashed in a plastic bag for up to 5 days.
