It’s August, which means that the New Mexico chile harvest is right around the corner. The best comes from Hatch, New Mexico! Therefore, I thought it was high time that I did a round up of my authentic Hatch chile recipes. Not that you need an excuse to eat lots of the stuff  but, did you know that chile is considered a super food? It is rich in vitamins A and C.  It helps to reduce cholesterol and increases your metabolism so it may help you lose weight. It also helps to reduce the chances of developing type II diabetes. The thing I love the most about it is that it is not just hot, (it actually can run from very mild to hotter than blue blazes) it is full of warm spicy flavor. So here we go, my Hatch chile recipes both green and red.

Most popular, I think is my Authentic Green Chile Stew. Remember, this recipe is from a native New Mexican. I think I made this the first time in college. It features ground beef, potatoes and green chiles in a warm, deep flavored broth. My twist is a bit of plain yogurt to soften and mellow the flavors a bit. Now for those of you that don’t care for yogurt, trust me on this, you will still like it. You could substitute sour cream but the yogurt is way lower in fat.
