Our Hatch green chile powder is made with the finest green chiles, grown in New Mexico’s Hatch Valley which is also known as the “Green Chile Capitol of the World”. The Hatch Valley’s fertile soil along with its warm days and cool nights makes it the very best climate for growing green chiles. Picked before ripening to red, the chiles are dehydrated and de-stemmed before being finely powdered into a tasty, medium-hot chile powder. The harvest season for these chiles is short, just a few weeks at the end of summer, so having a supply of “true” ground Hatch green chiles in your spice cabinet allows you to enjoy their authentic flavor year-round.
Hatch Green Chile Powder Q & A
What do green chiles taste like?
Fresh green chiles are pungent and subtly sweet with varying levels of heat depending on the particular variety. Fresh chiles are typically roasted before use which lends a smoky note. This green chile powder is rich and earthy with medium hot heat (6-7 on a scale of 1-10).
What can I substitute for green chiles?
Poblano chile peppers or jalapeños can be used as a substitute for fresh green chiles and jalapeno chile powder can be substituted for green chile powder although it is slightly less spicy and has a more fruity flavor.
Is red or green chile hotter?
Red chiles are simply ripened green chiles. The level of heat in either a red or green chile depends on the exact variety of chile. The main flavor difference between red and green chiles is that green (less ripe) chiles tend to have a fresher, crisper flavor while red chiles develop more sweetness and smokiness.
