Hatch Chile Festival
Dallasites, it is Hatch Chile Festival time at Central Market until August 21st!
Now, I've never cooked hatch chiles before and am not exactly sure how I would cook them; however, Central Market has recipe upon recipe of really interesting dishes. Check it out here. I'm going to try Tash's Hatch Chile Chicken Enchiladas recipe this week. . .
I did purchase some Hatch Chile tortillas (delicious) and also a Hatch Chile Chocolate bar just for kicks today. (I was in the chocolate aisle looking for some interesting dark chocolate since I was reminded recently how chocolate has been linked to lower BMI. The greatest news ever!) I had really low expectations of the chocolate bar, thinking I wouldn't be able to taste the chiles, but wow - it was spicy and flavorful. Really nice, rich chocolate -- and only $2! Give it a try and let me know if you have any great hatch chile recipes I should try.
