We’re all feeling the heat this summer, and thanks to our friends at Melissa’s Produce, it’s about to get even hotter – in the best way possible.
Melissa’s challenged us to create some of the hottest recipes we can think of using their fresh hatch chiles.
In the latest Foodbeast Recipe Challenge, Foodbeast family members from across the board were tasked to use Hatch Chile Peppers in the most remarkable ways. These include a sweet and spicy Hatch Chile Jam, artisanal hatch chile cheese slices, and whatever fire usually comes out of Costa’s Kitchen.
Chefs whipping up these fire Melissa’s Hatch Chile Recipes include Kai’s beautiful Roasted Hatch Chile White Cheddar Biscuits, Lynja’s refreshing Guacamole and Pico de Gallo, Elie’s smoked Hatch Chile Jam served PB&J style, Alyssa’s mouthwatering Honey Hatch Chile Chicken Sandwich, Chris’ rustic Homemade Hatch Chile American Cheese Slices melted into a smash patty, and Costa’s innovative Hatch Chicken Parm.
You can check out exactly how they pulled off these stunning recipes by clicking on the video above!
For any Foodbeasts out there who think they have a really dope Hatch recipe that can stand up to these culinary giants, here’s how you join in. All you have to do is post a photo of it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #HatchAtHome between 8/21 to 8/31.
One creative individual will win a Pitboss Grill, like the one Elie used to smoke his hatch chiles and a bunch of other prizes like an Air Fryer! The winners will be announced on 9/1.
In the meantime, I’m gonna see if I can rustle up some Melissa’s Hatch Chile Peppers and win that smoker. It’s BBQ season.
