Hatch Chile Cheese Bread

Hatch chile season is here and I have already loaded up on everything HATCH.

No lie…

I have hatch chile salsa, chips and now I made this hatch chile cheese bread.  The only thing I am missing is my main entree and my sister was just telling me that she made a stuffed hatch chile that was loaded with chicken and cheese.

Hatch chile season hits every August and usually lasts until September if the produce is good.  That is not a lot of time for me so I am stocking up while I can.

Hatch Chile Cheese Bread

You can never get enough peppers especially if they are roasted on the pit and then saved for a later use.  We like to freeze a couple of batches so I can have them throughout the year.  They are ALWAYS better fresh but you got to do, what you got to do.

This bread is perfect right out of the oven or you can zap it in the microwave for 15 seconds and then slather it with butter.  It’s possible that I even ate a hatch chile chicken salad sandwich between this bread.  Seriously folks I’m in HATCH HEAVEN.  Now who wants to join me!!!

ENJOY ~ Meagan

  8. This could possibly the best thing ever. Bread and cheese are just a win, win situation. I need to bake something like this soon 🙂

  9. I swear that almost every blog I’ve visited has a hatch chile recipe… I clearly did not get the memo. This bread looks divine my friend!

  10. I’m new to Hatch chilies! I saw them at Whole Foods today and I almost bought some. I wish I would have. Will have to go back and get some so I can try this recipe. Looks delicious!!

  11. This bread is terrific, thanks for posting it! I’m totally obsessed with hatch chiles, and this was a perfect vehicle for them. I blogged it today. Thanks!


  12. If you can’t find our chile locally, we actually ship via FedEx directly to consumers all over the world. We have both fresh (when in season) and frozen (already roasted, hand peeled, and packaged) available on our website at http://www.hatch-green-chile.com.

  13. I made this last night. I let it cook originally for an hour but it wasn’t done. Then I covered it with foil and let cook for 20 minutes. It was still raw in the middle. Family was hungry, so we just cut off the cooked ends. Kind of disappointing. I followed the recipe, but found it was weird that the dough doesn’t have a rise time. This may have helped it out. The taste was good, just not cooked.

  14. Oooh, your grilled cheese sandwiches sound amazing! Caramelized onions make any sandwich special. I think you ll love making sandwiches with this bread.
