There’s No Match for the Hatch

Picture this: You’re walking around the farmers market on a fall morning, checking out all of the fresh fruits, veggies, and artisan foods. Then you smell it—the savory aroma of roasting peppers wafting through the air, rich and toasty with just a hint of spicy heat. You've just caught the scent of roasting Hatch Green Chiles.

The Hatch Valley in New Mexico is the growing region of this well-loved variety of chile. Much like wine varietals, the location of origin makes all the difference for Hatch chiles. Though Anaheim chiles are similar and more widely available, Hatch Green Chiles have a cult following thanks to their unique flavor. Chances are, if you’ve spent time in the American Southwest—from Colorado to Southern California—you’re already a fan!

These culinary faves can be used in all kinds of Southwestern dishes including traditional chile verde, queso dip, and as an incredible upgrade to your hamburgers. But, Hatch chiles have a very limited season and are only available in certain regions. So how can you get this crave-able flavor all year round? Savory Spice has the solution: Hatch Green Chile Powder. It packs a ton of awesome New Mexican flavor into a spice jar.

When we say this powder “packs” in the flavor, it’s no joke! It takes about 18 pounds of chilies to make one pound of Hatch Green Chile Powder. That means there are about a dozen dried and ground Hatch chilies per spice bottle! The resulting flavor is distinctly earthy with a subtle piquant flavor. The heat level is medium-hot, about a 6-7 out of 10.

When cooking, add 1 Tbsp. into your favorite chili or stew recipe. For Hatch burgers, mix a teaspoon or two into 1 lb. ground meat before shaping into patties and grilling. You can also use this powder as a sprinkle over grilled chicken or inside quesadillas before cooking. We love using this flavorful powder in Green Chile Sauce and Pseudo-Creamy Tortilla Soup.

What about Pueblo green chiles? Have you tried them. I believe them to be a superior product. Is Savory a Colorado based company?

Thanks for the recommendation for Pueblo green chiles Ben! Although Savory has stores all around the country, we are a Colorado-based company. The original store is on Platte Street in Denver!
