Essex Street Market and NOT stop by Roni-Sue's! Just the thought of doing that makes my head spin, especially when the lovely Rhonda Kave said "Blondie, you need to try my new spicy chocolate, Down the Hatch!" Rhonda's been playing around with dehydrated Hatch green chiles and chocolate. People, this is serious!
Hatch chiles come from Hatch, New Mexico, which is located in the fertile Rio Grande Valley. These chiles are only ripe for a few weeks every year, are only available from this area, and are considered some of the best tasting chiles. From what I understand, there isn't just one type, instead there are several, each with its own spice quotient.
