Hatch 22 is a simple salsa with complex flavors. It is a great dish for chip dipping or add to any dish that calls for some “salsa verde.”
Roast: 7 Hatch Chilies (mild, medium, hot or a mixture) + 5 Tomatillos + 2 roma tomatoes (you can use other tomatoes but I like their flavor)+ 2 poblanos, put all this on a baking sheet under the boiler on high and flip in about 5 minutes, and do the other side. Allow time for the ingredients to steam and cool. Then peel them all, de-seed the peppers and add to a blender or food processor. Then add 5 sprigs of cilantro (stems not included) + the juice of 1 lime or about 2 tablespoons of lime juice and blend.
Serve with chips.
Take a pound of beef short ribs or other good stew meat cook it in the crockpot on low for an hour then add about 1/2 cup of Hatch 22 salsa and let the whole thing stew for another 8 hours, salt and pepper to taste and serve with warm corn or flour tortillas. (super yummy)
