For the last 3 months it has been about a hundred degrees and sunny. Then it was labor day and now summer is suddenly gone. It’s been raining ever since which is great because we really need the rain but man, I am not ready for summer to be over! I haven’t even gone tubing yet or eaten enough tomatoes. The good thing is that figs are in season and organic strawberries are abundant so it isn’t a complete loss yet.I was inspired by dragonfly pie to make some hatch green chile hummus and it was really simple and good. I think you can add these peppers to anything and it would be good, here is the recipe
Hatch Green Chile Hummus
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup cashews
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 can of chickpeas, drained and washed
2 roasted green chiles
juice of one lime
1 teaspoon smoked salt
1/2 teaspoon of fresh sage
Process the garlic, then add the cashews and process a minute or two. Add the remaining ingredients and dilute with water until desired texture is achieved. Enjoy!
I have been using the hummus on avocado, tomato, and greens sandwiches and it I recommend it, the chiles add a lot of flavor.
I love love hummus…..I was just eating some on thin pretzels.
green chiles rock any dish! great idea to add to hummus.
Mmm sounds delish! And I agree about figs: they make the end of summer *almost* bearable.
Oh man, I’m wishing even more that I had a hatch resource up here! I like the addition of cashews to the hummus–what a good idea!
That sounds really good!
Thanks for the recipe but I have trouble determining what a green chile is. I’m suspecting it’s the Paprica Punta, am I right?
Mmm… when I saw your pic I was wondering what you were using for the base… using both nuts and beans sounds like a delicious way to make hummus. I usually only use one or the other!
Niels- for some reason the Hatch Green Chilies never say specifically what kind of pepper they are, I should have asked at the store! If you don’t have access to the Hatch roasted peppers you could use roasted poblanos or probably anything else, if they are spicy just use less.
Okay, I’ll experiment with the kind of pepper I use, but mild is the way to go, right?
yes, I would say so, it just depends on how spicy you like stuff!
True, true 🙂
I’ll just experiment.
Thanks for the recipe!
So weird how all of a sudden summer is over. I kinda miss it. I still have a couple of pounds of Hatch chiles. Hummus is a great way to use them.
