If 2020 could really use anything I would ask for a sense of normalcy. It has been quite the year. So let's get back to something a lot of us look forward to each year. Who is ready for that delicious smell coming from the United Supermarkets? I am talking about Hatch Green Chile's. Are you ready to have them added to a lot of your meals? I know I am.

I love everything about Hatch Chile Season....and I love going to Market Street to get my fix. You get to choose whether you want mild or hot. I tend to lean more toward the hot variety. I sometimes buy both though and mix them together.

If you are ready to get your fix on you are in luck. This year's "Hatch Chile Fest" will kick off this weekend.  All United Store locations will have a special roasting event from 10 am until 5 pm on both Saturday and Sundays. You can pick up a quart bag ($5), half a case ($16.99) or even a case ($19.99), if you use that much. If you don't want to get them roasted for you....they have the un-roasted available in the store too.

Not only do they roast the Chile's for you during that time....but they are all about the Hatch Green Chile. There are so many great recipes out there. United is there to provide them.

There is nothing better than the smell of those

Have you tried the Hatch Green Chile Cornbread yet? It is fabulous. Oh and the guacamole too.  Maybe this year I will try some Hatch Green Chile enchiladas or meatloaf. Oooh did I mention the queso? The options are just endless.

I'm dreaming of a Hatch Green Chile August. Even if you are health conscious they have options too. Like the Hatch Chile Smoked Salmon, Texas Tumbled Hatch Chile Chicken Breast, or the Fire Roasted Hatch and Jack Turkey Burgers. There really is something for everyone.

It's almost that most wonderful time of the year.....I am ready to have something normal in 2020. This could be what we all need.
