Just because Hatch Season is winding down doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the great taste of these New Mexico chiles. Considered one of the most flavorful peppers in the world, Hatch Chiles hail from the Mesilla Valley nearby Hatch, New Mexico and are only available for a short season. However, if you weren’t able to get your hands on any of these chiles at any of the roastings this year, then our Hatch Chile Powder Shakers is the best way to enjoy their unique flavor. The shakers are available in both mild and hot and can be used to flavor sauces, soups, guacamole and of course, salsa!
