recipe_chile_01 History of Hatch

Did you know that the 'Hatch Chile' is not a variety of pepper? It's actually just a term to describe several different varieties grown in Hatch, New Mexico. Hatch has become the chile capital, known for producing chile peppers with unique, zesty flavor. These Hatch Chiles are so appetizing that they have cultivated a fan following each summer. 

Fun fact: Many people think that the red Hatch Chiles and green Hatch Chiles are different types of peppers, when in fact, they come from the same plant, just picked at different times. The red Hatch chile pepper is simply more ripe than the green chile.


This chile pepper has cultivated quite the following due to its unique, fiery flavor and short season. Easy to cook with, we like to think Hatch Chile goes with everything. Spice up your life this summer with authentic green chile recipes that are sure to be a winner amongst all.
