Central Market is getting ready for its 26th annual Hatch Chile Fest.
The retailer will sell more Hatch products than ever before, including fresh and fire-roasted peppers, Hatch pepper tortillas and Hatch-marinated meats and seafood. Some highlights are the hatch queso chicken mac and cheese casserole, Hatch twice-baked potatoes, Hatch crab cakes, Hatch pepper sausage kolaches and brioche with roasted Hatch pepper.
The peppers get their name from Hatch, New Mexico, where they’re harvested for a few weeks each year. Central Market is bringing in more than 250,000 pounds of the peppers this year.
Get the goods Aug. 4-24 at the Preston Royal Central Market, located at 10720 Preston Road.
