Los Angeles, California (2019) – Melissa’s introduces a new seasoning mix to the company’s line of Hatch Pepper products. The Hatch chile pepper, grown exclusively in the Mesilla Valley near Hatch, New Mexico, is considered to be one of the most flavorful peppers in the world. This seasoning is made from both green and red dried Hatch peppers.
Green Hatch are picked when the peppers are still young with a light, zesty-fresh flavor! Red Hatch have been left in the field longer and harvested when fully red-ripe; the pepper has a more intense, spicy taste with a hint of smokiness. This seasoning mix combines the two to create a uniquely flavored condiment. Use in traditional Hispanic dishes such as Chile Con Queso, Chile Rellenos, and Chile Verde. The seasoning is also a quick and easy way to flavor soups, stews, dips or fried food batter. Melissa’s Hatch Pepper Seasoning is available year-round.
