Central Market’s Hatch Chile Recipe Contest: The Winners

This post is long overdue. Better late than never, right? Last Saturday, seven brave cooks competed in Central Market’s Fourth Annual Hatch Chile Pepper Recipe Contest. I was lucky enough to serve as a judge. Everything we tasted was delicious but a few really stood out. Jump for the results.

  1. Hi, I was reading your post and I just wanted to say thank you for putting out such great content. There’s so much nonsense on the internet these days its difficult to find anything worthwhile. I actually have cooked this recipe before, I got this book last month on recommendation from a friend http://ninjahq.com/go/cookingrecipes and it turned out really nice! I’m very eager to try your variation of it though, it looks fantastic. I think you might enjoy those recipes, they’re very good. Thanks for the article and tips.
