COOKIN’ WITH HATCH
No matter what anyone says, you can wear white after Labor Day. However, there’s one September rule that’s set in stone — Hatch pepper season will be over by October. Since the world’s most prized pepper is only here for a few more weeks, now’s the time to take advantage of the harvest.
So, what makes this veggie so special? Similar to Champagne, these chiles are exclusive to New Mexico’s Hatch region. When hot days, cool nights, and nutrient-rich soil combine in late summer, pure magic happens. As soon as they’re picked, our trusted farmers send the peppers directly to SoCal so we can roast them to smoky, beauty-marked perfection.
