If you’re like me, by the time August rolls around I’m already in the comfort food state of mind. This is a special time of year when the smoky and spicy taste of hatch chili peppers delight!
While some invite hatch peppers to lunch or dinner only, I love welcoming hatch peppers at the start of my day; this inspiration is how this “hatchbrown” recipe was born. Enjoy it and the rest of your fall “flavorites!”
❤ Nothing beats the taste of freshly smoked hatches. If you’re not sure how to roast your own here’s an article with some tips that will have you a culinary hatch wizard in a snap. Take advantage of hatch roasting events at HEB or Central Market and enjoy the smell on the car ride home – prior to the devouring!
❤ If you’re in a flurry outside of fresh hatch season you can keep some Trader Joe’s fire roasted and chopped hatch peppers on hand. They pack just as much punch as the fresh boys and I encourage you to keep a pouch in your freezer year-round for those heated moments when you gotta have yours.
❤ Eggs? Poached eggs are on my mind. Here’s a recipe for how to make perfectly poached eggs! Follow the video – and not so much the recipe text beneath it (which differs).
❤ You’re likely to find another popular hatch-inspired recipe or two here on the Home Style Austin Blog. (hint hint).
