Hatch chile pepper season is in full swing in August and September, and I love to use the peppers in as many things as I can! Find more green chile recipes here!
I am lucky to live in a state where we see these fresh peppers by the truckload every year. But if you don’t have the fresh ones, canned works great. You can find diced Hatch green chiles online here! They come in different heat levels, so pick what you prefer. I like to use mild or medium, depending on what I am making and how many of them are in the dish.
Hatch Green Chile Chorizo Pinwheels make a great appetizer for entertaining and game day because they are so fast and easy to make. First, cook the chorizo sausage. Chorizo is a slightly spicy, seasoned Mexican sausage. You can also use any other kind of sausage that you like. Then make the cream cheese mixture, mixing in the diced Hatch green chiles. Spread the cream cheese on a tortilla and add the chorizo on top. Roll the tortillas up tight and chill. The chilling makes them easier to cut and they hold together better.
