Odd as it may seem, Hatch chiles, the famous spicy peppers grown in the Hatch Valley in Southwestern New Mexico, will soon be “in season” in Georgia, again.
Taqueria del Sol is celebrating with a shipment of fresh chiles. And starting August 26, chef Eddie Hernandez will work the peppers into his weekly specials at all Georgia locations, continuing through the entire month of September.
Look for green chile tacos, pot pie, rellenos, tamales, enchiladas, jambalaya and more. And check the weekly menu specials here: www.taqueriadelsol.com.
A bit of bad news: The annual Hatch Chile Festival Taqueria del Sol has been putting on for several years has been canceled in favor of the month of specials.
And some good news: The Square Pub in Decatur will hold its third annual Green Chile Roast on September 14, featuring 8,000 pound of hand-roasted Hatch green chiles selected in New Mexico by the pub’s co-owners, Jason Wiles and Bob Rhein.
The Roast will feature lots chile-inspired food and drink, plus music and local green chile craft beer: www.squarepubdecatur.com.
