Melissa's is now offering a deliciously convenient way to enjoy Fresh Hatch Pico de Gallo salsa, no chopping or roasting required on your end! Herby cilantro, crisp onions, lime juice, jalapenos and juicy tomatoes come together with a unique star ingredient: Hatch Peppers.
Named after the original growing area in Hatch, New Mexico, authentic Hatch Peppers are truly a Southwestern favorite. No other pepper is prized more than this variety, which grows in the Hatch Valley, just north of Las Cruces. The valley, which stretches along the Rio Grande's southern-most bend before crossing into Texas and Mexico, is covered with row after row of these green leafy pepper plants for most of the summer. Needless to say, Hatch brings something extra special to this classic salsa recipe.
Spoon this salsa over your eggs in the morning, top your tacos with it, or cozy up with a bowl of chips to get your snack on. Honestly, the options are endless with this fresh condiment.
