During the month of August, you can find Hatch Chiles roasting at Central Market in Texas! Hatch chiles are actually grown in Hatch, New Mexico and harvested this time of year. We stock up and freeze for the rest of the year. You could use hatch chiles for homemade salsa, pico de gallo, chili, tortilla soup and my favorite, on top of burgers. If you’ve never tried them before, I encourage you to try them out. They are usually out of the stores towards the end of August, so don’t waste time! Here’s a recipe that makes you feel like you are in a cafe in the desert of New Mexico.
