Hatch Green Chile – An Ever Growing Giveaway

Hatch Green Chile – An Ever Growing Giveaway

I am so very excited to be kicking off 2014 with this phenomenal giveaway!

As I’ve mentioned before in my posts about storing , canning and cooking, hatch green chile is an absolute staple in our house! It is eaten at least once a week, more often than not though, it is eaten several times a week ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, imagine my excitement when Berridge Farms (the very farm we purchase our green chile from each year) commented on one of my posts and offered to work with me to offer you, Dear Readers, a phenomenal giveaway!

Before we get into the actual giveaway, though, I’d like to introduce you to Berridge Farmsย and give you a little bit of information about them and the whole hatch green chile growing/harvesting and eating experience!

A Few Factoids:

  • Berridge Farms is run by three generations of Berridges including the nice folks who make the trip up to Santa Fe each year so we can purchase our annual stash
  • Berridge Farms sits on 300 acres located in the Hatch Valley in Southern New Mexico
  • Hatch green chile is full of so manyย nutrients!
  • Hatch Green Chile is technically only grown in the Hatch Valley, although many chain grocery stores (and some smaller operations) will sell “hatch” chile that is actually not from Hatch, but instead from other farms and, sometimes, even other countries! So, if you’re look for pure Hatch green chile, be sure to ask your vendor for some more information before forking over your hard earned cash!


Alright, are you ready for the actual giveaway?! ย I though so!

    I love the Sandia Hot! I order a large amount every season as I live in Maryland now. I Use them to make Chicken Enchiladas, and Green Chile cheese burgers.

  25. Anders

    After having the Sandias, I can no longer eat canned chilies. Love them in eggs or as part of a casserole for a little heat.

  26. Scott Hricsina

    I prefer Sandia chile peppers. I grew up in Albuquerque, and my favorite way to eat them is in Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas! My second favorite way to eat them is to dice them and put them in, or on, everything else I eat. Green chile stew, rellenos, breakfast burritos, on burgers, on pizza, posole, in mac ‘n’ cheese, in salsa, in guacamole… the list goes on and on!

  27. Rebecca

    I would like to try the Sandia. I like hot green chiles! I like green chiles with almost everything!

    We actually order the Sandias from Berridge each year! So good in everything – we like to put them in mac and cheese.

  29. Thomas Mick

    I like the Hot Sandia chiles. We moved from Colorado to North Carolina and the thing I miss the most is the availability of Green Chile’s they just don’t have them here.

  30. Mark M.

    Sandia and the Big Jim! Was born in ABQ and now stuck in the midwest so I put chile on almost everything once I get a batch!

  31. Carla

    Barker!!! Extra hot please! My favorite for making green chile stew and creamy green chile chicken!

  32. Kasey Murillo

    My favorite are Big Jim Rellenos. My favorite ways to use them chopped is in homemade salsa and green chilie chicken enchiladas. For whole chilies I love rellenos with cheese. We live in central Ohio but my husband is from Las Cruces, NM. When we visit family we always try to bring some Hatch chilies home with us. They’re the best!

  33. Brandy

    We like Big Jim. Love them in posole & green chile & bacon quiche. Sure mis the smell of fire roasting chiles in the fall!

    Barker all the way!! We go get our Chile every fall! I have potato soup in the crock pot right now with lots of green chile- It can never be too hot!!

  35. Kali Flewellen

    It depends on my mood, but I tend to lean to Sandia. I love making salsa and enchilada sauce with my peppers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Sarah

    We order from them every year. Our favorite is the Sandia green. We love them added to everything but the best is green chile chicken enchilada casserole.

  37. Stacy Chumley

    Big Jim medium I put it in pretty much everything I can. Grew up in NM moved family gave me a few little ziplock baggies and I’m out and sad. Lol

  38. Shauna

    I prefer the Big Jims but sometimes they are not spicy enough for me. I may have to try the sandia next year. I love chile rellenos. There is nothing like fresh homemade rellenos with chilies from the festival.

  39. Reagan G.

    We would like the big Jim. I’ve never had hatch chilies, but have heard my father-in-law rave about them for years. He lived in that area for years and loves them.

  40. Wendy

    I prefer mild peppers. I’ve never tried hatch chili’s but I have heard they are amazing. Can’t wait to try them

  41. Katie Zack

    Medium heat for me too! My friend sometimes brings me Hatch chili when she visits her parents in NM but it isn’t very often!

  42. crafty_cristy

    I prefer the Big Jim medium temperature chiles. We are only recently ramping up the heat in our household, so we can’t take it as hot as many southwesterners can. ๐Ÿ™‚
