Please log in to add this to your favorites.

Serve a dinner so good your family will clamor for an encore with these Central Market finds that feature Hatch chiles as part of the middle-of-plate main attraction. Chops to soups, we have you covered from big appetites to small.  

Hatch-Stuffed Boneless Pork Chops
Juicy, tender, all-natural pork filled with Hatch, Cornbread & Pecan or Hatch Tamale stuffing. A quick zip through the Chef’s Case, and you’ll have sides to complete the meal such as Twice Baked Potatoes and Green Beans with Toasted Almonds.

Stuffed Burger: Hatch Chile and Smoked Brisket with Cheddar
Go visit our team in the Market and order up these new stuffed burgers. Biting into one of these gems is like discovering buried treasure! Scoop up your favorite toppings – lettuce, tomato, onion rings, and then try a different mustard/ketchup/mayo like one of these new ones we have brought in for you this summer.

Shrimp with Hatch Chile Sauce
We know you love shrimp. So how about shrimp cooked in Green Pipian sauce with charred tomatillos, Tequila Reposado, and a trio of peppers? The answer, of course, is yes, yes, yes! But, in case you’re pausing on “green pipian sauce,” let me explain. Well, I’ll let the New York Times explain: Green Pipian sauce, a “classic Mexican pumpkin seed sauce, also known as green mole, is tangy, herbal and spicy all at the same time.” Boom. It’s a real delight on chicken, veggies, and shrimp, so try something new tonight and pick this up from Chef Prepared.

Hatch Pozole
Don’t feel like cooking, or looking for something light? We have just the thing. Our Hatch Pozole is a bold soup with tomatillos, poblano and Hatch peppers, hominy and garlic. Served with green cabbage, lime wedges and red radish. If one Hatch dish on the menu is never enough, pair it with Hatch Cornbread from the Bakery or our Hatch Chile Con Queso and your favorite chips. Or both. I’m not judging. I’m encouraging.

There is so much Hatch to choose from during Hatch-A-Palooza. Come visit before we pack it up for another year. You have until August 23 – don’t wait!
