You are going to want this Hatch Chile Butter Recipe at the ready! Its sweet-spicy flavor adds delicious flavor to toast, pasta, chicken, fish, steak, corn, and the list goes on!A lot of things in my life make me smile. Some are big . . .
When my mom says she’s having a good day.
When my boys feel proud of themselves.
The sound of my boys laughing together.
My sweet brother.
And some are little . . .
When my dog is peacefully sleeping with all fours in the air.
When my husband sneaks my favorite ice cream into the freezer for me.
When my lemon tree blooms for the first time all year.
And Hatch Chile season, of course!
Hatch Chile season is especially precious, as it’s only six to eight weeks long. So you have to get them while you can!
Hatch Chile roastings happen throughout their season each year, all over the United States. Look for a roasting in your city here.
I think the Hatch Chiles are just as beautiful roasted and charred, as they are fresh and raw. Do you?
This Hatch Chile Butter is amazing on grilled corn, broiled fish, sautéed chicken, and a toasty slice of rustic bread.

I love the hot Hatch Chiles for this recipe, but if you prefer less heat, mild would also be delicious. These are one of the few chiles that are typically labeled “hot” or “mild.” Not all stores however, label them — so be sure to taste a bit before using them.
