Hatch Chile Season Is Hereeee!

Are you guys hatch chile fans? Because I sure am! But they only come around once a year and you gotta get them fast before it's too late. I found that out the hard way and completely missed them last year. Total bummer. However, hatch chile season is upon us now and I'm making sure not to make the same mistake again! So.... we'll probably be eating hatch for the next ehhhh 5 days? (: 

I've been Googling all sorts of recipes in preparation and found an abundance of mouth-watering, hunger-inducing ideas. And I just had to share. 

To start off with, we have the typical hispanic style recipes like the hatch chile guacamole, hatch chile cornbread, and hatch chile salsa. Those are kind of the usual though, here are a few more exceptional mexican style appetizers and dishes to get you in the mood.
