Dedicated thread for this years Hatch Chile harvest.
 
All the markets in Austin have them right now and I've made Hatch Chile Andouille Sausage soup, Hatch Chile Gator Enchiladas and Hatch Chile Roast Pork Potato stew in the past few days.
 
What recipes are you integrating the fresh Hatch Chile harvest into?

I have to get some White Cheddar this week.
 
I was thrilled to find Hatch in a local grocery last week. I usually have to drive to buy 'em. I've bought 15 pounds, have to still roast five.
 
I sneak the mild ones into meatloaf, the spouse does not like heat, but he doesn't mind the mild tingle. I will make Hatch quesadillas for lunches. I will put them in my salads.
 
Please, SC, would you share the Roast Pork Potato Stew recipe? That sounds so good.
 
If the market still has 'em in three weeks, I will purchase some and pack them to add to some habaneros in a Pilbil, while on vacation. Pibil is a vacation tradition.
 
Dumb question - how long will fresh Hatch last? Should I just buy them now?

Totillie,  Buy them and roast them.  Then you can freeze them.

I've never seen fresh ones around here, but I've gotten them canned. Well, the can says Hatch, whether they're authentic or not I'd have to check. They're still very good though. I'll use them when braising some pork or beef to make tacos/burritos with, or toss a small can into a pot of chili. Delicious.

Since you're close to Louisana, you should be able to get some on-line pretty quick.
One of my Favorite places is Poche's Market in Beaux Bridge LA

I ride through Acadiana at least twice per year. I can get about 40lbs on my bike. NuNu's, Best Stop and Johnson's Boucaniere are my favorites but I've never had bad meat from any of the little spots in the region.

Hatch Chile Corned Beef Hash
One potato, grated through large holes of a box grater
An equal amount of home corned beef, chopped (brined, boiled, then cooled for ease of more controlled shredding and chopping)
1/2 Spanish onion, diced
3 Hatch chiles, seeded, ribbed, and chopped
 
Fry in a tablespoon or so of oil until a crust begins to form, seasoning with Kosher salt and fresh-cracked black pepper midway through.  Enjoy.

Sounds good but I'm getting lazy in my old age. I'll use store-bought Corned Beef.
Do you rinse and dry the potatoes before cooking??

Not one to burst anyones bubble but many stores have been known to market Hatch, New Mexico chili with product that isn't really from Hatch.  There was a law regarding this just recently passed making it a crime to advertise anything but real Hatch, New Mexico chili.

By the way.  The Hatch Chili Festival is on right now and I would suggest that if you are ever in the State of New Mexico on Labor Day Weekend to come and visit the one and only Authentic Hatch Chili Festival.

Fiesta Mart,where I shop in Austin, stacks up the boxes that the chile peppers are shipped in and they're stamped with a cool looking "Product of Hatch New Mexico" stamp.
 
Plus they are radically delicious. They taste like cucumbers and watermelons crossed with Poblano but with way more heat. If loving them is wrong then I don't want to be right.

Unfortunately we don't have Hatch Chiles here in Ohio.  I can get them canned online but it's not the same as the fresh.  Just ask anyone who has had a green chile cheeseburger at Bobcat Bite!

Have I done that?  Sure, but it's far simpler to parboil the potato(s) the night before (8-10 minutes in boiling water), then to refrigerate.  The next morning the spud is ready for grating and an easy fry.

We get them often when in season.  But use then just like other peppers, the mild ones like bell peppers, the hotter ones like hotter peppers.

Since I have never seen Hatch chiles in Michigan are they essentially  a larger jalepeno ( no wise comments) and /or can jalepenos be substituted?

Not at all like jalapenos, but if you can get Anaheim or California peppers they are similar.

I regret to report my part of the country has a serious shortage of gator meat, but on the plus side, that's probably due to having no local alligators.  Overall, that may be a fair trade off.
 
I wonder what a 1/2 lb of shredded smoked poultry with a 1/2 lb of pulled pork would be like as substitute protein.

Pork or chicken either one would work as a gator substitute. Gator just happens to be really delicious. You can order it online from Best Stop in Scott LA

Hatch Hash is good.
 
No measurements:
 
Roast, peel and seed some Hatch chiles.  Dice
 
Fry up some diced potatoes and onions, mix in Hatch chiles.  Season with salt and pepper.
 
You can eat it like that or add some yummy calories by adding Mexican Crema.  Cook that down, add some white cheese if you want and eat it in tacos or in an omelet or with a spoon.
 
Not bad over a steak, either.

Just been working on organizing my cookbooks, (been collecting for a while).  Anyway, One of the ones I recently came across was a copy of "Award Winning Recipes from the Annual Hatch Chile Festival"  It's the 5th edition put out in 1989.   Not sure about the recipes in it though, editing was non-existent.  The Grand prize winning recipe from 1984 only lists amounts for 4 ingredients, 3 more are used in the instructions, so I guess they are to taste?  Whatever, it's neat to look through & check out the uses for peppers.
