New Mexico Chiles (Hatch), Dried
A sweet pepper with the taste of red pepper and cranberry. It’s one of the most unique chile peppers that belong to Tex-Mex cuisine. The heat is extremely mild and makes these dried hatch chiles great for beginners.
Also known as Anaheim chile peppers, this particular cultivar was developed in New Mexico before it found its way to California. When aged and dried the fruit flavors intensify and the flesh becomes even sweeter.
These New Mexico hatch red chili pods are truly epic tossed into a roasted tomato salsa or bowl of chili verde. For a more modern recipe, add one to your cranberry jam or cornbread next Thanksgiving. Add a toasted one to bottle of good tequila and allow it to infuse for a few days to create a unique spirit that when blended with a bit of lime and club soda makes for a dazzling cocktail. Fancy dessert? Grind the dried hatch chiles into a powder and add to an apple cobbler and serve with lightly whipped and sweetened cream.
