Melissa's Hatch Pecans are tasty, savory nuts that are covered in red or green Hatch Pepper Powder. Authentic New Mexico flavor provides a nice kick of spice to your snack game. The buttery and nutty flavor of the pecan mixed with the Hatch Pepper Powder creates the perfect pick-me-up flavor combination you'll love any time of year. Many Americans are familiar with pecans, having seen them appear on holiday tables in the form of pecan pie. This power-packed nut deserves to be enjoyed year-round though, and not necessarily in pie every time.
Pecans are a healthy, nutrient-dense nut that will easily sustain you from one meal to the next. You can also add to dishes like fresh salads to bulk up nutrition in your recipes. Did you know that pecans have the highest fat (the good kind) content of any nut? For those that have adopted a more plant-based, vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, consider pecans as a great complementary plant-based protein source!
Hatch Pecans taste great as an on-the-go snack, topping for salads, or you can crush them up to make a pecan meal and use to dredge fish or chicken – yum!
