Hatch chiles are a broad marketing term for several varieties of New Mexico chiles, including Big Jim, Barker, and R-Naky. They have a similar meaty flesh and mild-medium heat.
Hatch chile's peak season begins mid- to late August.
Because of their short season, roast and peel them for storage in the freezer throughout the year.
Use in Chile Con Queso, Chiles Rellenos, and Chile Verde. Roast them for use in salads, soups, stews, dips, and sandwiches. Infuse in chocolate.
