Hatch is back

I saw Hatch chiles at the downtown Whole Foods. 33 cents a pound (sale pricing). This seems a little early, but no complaints. The only thing I like about August in Austin are all the Hatch choices.

    I missed their $.33/lb sale last year. It seems early for them to be running the sale. I'm not ready for them yet - I hope they're still on sale next week.

            $2.78/lb at the Slaughter HEB yesterday, $.68/lb at Central Market. The "Milds" were more of Medium. Made a big 3lb batch of Green Chile Sauce (about a half gallon).

              Hatch peppers are overrated. Plus, I don't need hatch cookies, hatch ice cream, hatch stuffed hatch peppers, and hatch soap.

                Agreed on the some of the sillier items, but the sausages and hamburgers are often quite nice.

                I disagree with the overrated, but I did see this article from a New Mexican basically saying Hatch itself is nothing different than a typical New Mexico green chile--just a marketing gimmick. http://alibi.com/food/43183/A-Myth-Ha...

                I tried the Hatch Sausages from HEB and they were great. Four (4) links for $3.97 if I remember correctly.

                  Yea, those sausages were good. Trying the HEB hatch burger tonight.
                  Made some queso flameado with some hots from WF last weekend.
