Hatch chile powder

LJS2 Sep 17, 2013 06:33 PM

I just received my copy of the recently re-released Serious Barbecue by Adam Perry Lang. Great book that has some interesting new techniques. A lot of the recipes call for a seasoning blend that includes Hatch Chile powder. I have not seen this ingredient anywhere. Does anyone know where it can be found in the GTA? Thanks in advance for your help!

    If you need a powdered chile,there is Red Club Mexican, unsmoked apparently, at Highland Farms.

      Mail order from the States if you want the N.M. real deal. You get that Hatch is a place, not a type of chile, right?

        I do now.... I don't think I want it badly enough to mail order a large quantity from the States. I will look for it locally or try to find a substitute.

          I bought mine from hatch-chile.com. Don't think they send to Canada though.

          They have New Mexico 6-4 (Mild), Big Jim variety (Medium/Hot), Sandia (Hot), Espanola Improved (Extra Hot), Lumbre (XX-Hot). All sundried. I have been using the Sandias and they are very good.

          Lots of good dried chiles available in Kensington Mkt. Go down and ask at Salamanca or Perola's. Many of the dried peppers there are smoked (which will be fine), but the Hatch ones don't have a smokey flavor.

            In Kensington, just make sure any dried chiles aren't dessicated and crumbly. They have a shelf life and lose flavor--if not heat--as they age. You want slightly flexible.
