This Hatch Red Chile Sauce from The Fresh Chile Co. is 100% made in New Mexico using real, authentic Hatch Peppers, and it's no secret why everyone is obsessed with Hatch.
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.
You get fresh green Hatch Peppers roasted every season at your favorite grocery store from Melissa's, but how often do you come across the red peppers? Moreover, conveniently jarred as your potentially new favorite enchilada sauce? These ripe and ready ruby-red Hatch Peppers are perfectly sweet, and just a kiss hotter than their spicy green counterparts – precisely the kick your taste buds crave! Chefs say that the intense sunlight and cool nights in this valley result in a uniquely flavored pepper that's unrivaled by any other. Not just for enchiladas, this Hatch Red Chile Sauce could accompany many of your favorite recipes that include Hatch.
This sauce is paleo and vegan-friendly and contains no additives or any added sugar. Store in a cool, dry place. Refrigerate after opening.
