Hi friends! Yesterday I shared those amazing Spicy Hatch Chile Chips and today, I’m sharing a Hatch Chile Steak Sandwich! You need a sandwich to go with your chips, right? All the YUMS are happening in this Hatch Chile Steak Sandwich. Toasted bread. Beautiful strips of steak, marinated in Hatch Chile Salsa and then grilled. Add caramelized onions and strips of roasted Hatch Chile peppers, melted swiss cheese and to cool everything off, big slices of avocado. Hungry yet? Let’s dig in!
Don’t those look good? These are from my freezer. With Hatch Chile season just around the corner, you need to stock up! Hatch Chiles are only in stores once a year. Thankfully, they do freeze well! Fun fact about Hatch Chiles – they get hotter the longer they’re frozen. It’s true! So be aware when you pop them in the freezer for soups and casseroles this winter, that they may be a bit spicier than you remember.
One question I get asked often about Hatch Chiles is how to roast them yourself. It’s a very simple process. First rule: Wear gloves. Please wear gloves. Always wear gloves! Not that I have experience with accidentally rubbing my eyes after handling peppers and being in tears for the next few hours, positive I’d be blind forever from the burn. Nope. Not me. For the rest of the rules and details, read this post: Handling the Hatch
As a reminder, Aug 3rd starts the 2017 Hatch Chile Season! You’ll want to go to a roasting event, for sure, so check out this list of Melissa’s Hatch Chile Roasting Events
