Additional Details

Description: Fresh Hatch Chiles, grown only in the Mesilla Valley of New Mexico, are available for just a few short weeks each year, in August and September. The peppers develop thick walls with meaty, flavorful flesh unlike any other chile. Roasting heightens their robust earthy flavor, with the texture of the chile pods becoming lusciously rich. 

Melissa's Produce family has a long-standing tradition of road tripping to New Mexico to pick their very own 50-pound burlap sack of freshly harvested Hatch Chiles. What's one to do with that many chiles? 

Melissa's Produce has spent decades creating recipes and now they're opening their family recipes to you. 

Here, you'll find all of Melissa's Produce secrets for roasting, seeding, and storing these special chiles to enjoy all year long. You'll find more than 150 recipes for all their favorite dishes, from breakfast to dessert -- even a Hatch Chile-infused Tequila for your next Margarita.

  • Corn and Green Chile Quiche 
  • Make-Ahead Breakfast Enchiladas 
  • Garlic-Chile Butter Sauteed Shrimp
