New Season, New Recipes

It’s that hot time of the year again! Hatch chile peppers have come into their summer season, and we have a few refreshers as well as a whole batch of new recipes to celebrate! Think: Roasted Hatch Chile Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Bleu Cheese Stuffed Hatch Chile Burgers, and Quick Hatch Chile Salsa Fresca—all courtesy of our vendor-friends at Melissa's Produce.
 
Hatch Chile Grilled Quesadilla
 
But first, a quick nutrition and how-to recap from last year’s "Cooking with Kate: All About Hatch."
 

Fun Hatch Facts: 

  • One fresh medium-sized green chile has as much Vitamin C as six oranges.
  • Green chiles are also a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, and fiber.
  • Capsaicinoids—the chemical that make chile peppers spicy—are used in muscle patches for sore and aching muscles, as well as pepper spray!
  • You might think that green and red chiles are different types of peppers, but they are in fact fruit of the same plant picked at different times. The red chile is the fully ripened version of the green chile.
  • These spicy peppers are finding their way into everything—sauces, breads, cheeses, even ice cream! Check your local store for all the available Hatch chile products.
For a brief refresher on the nutritional merits of other summer produce, check out the blog post “Summer Fruit: A Delicious Problem” by our local registered dietitian, Angela Larson!
 

How To: Roasted Hatch Chiles

Roast green chiles using one of the methods below:
  • Broiler: Preheat broiler on high. Place chiles on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 6-10 minutes, turning often, until chile skins blacken and blister.
  • Charcoal or Gas Grill: Preheat grill and place chiles 4-6 inches from heat. Cook, turning often, until chile skins blacken and blister.
  • Gas Stove: Turn stove to high. Using tongs, hold chiles over flames, turning often, until skins blacken and blister.
Once chiles are roasted, place in a plastic or paper bag for about 10 minutes to steam. Wearing gloves, take the chiles out of the bag and remove the skins by rubbing gently. Use a sharp knife to cut pepper open and remove the stems, membranes, and seeds. Use chiles immediately or let cool completely, package in airtight freezer bags and place in the freezer until ready to use.
 
You can find other tips on storing produce and groceries in your fridge with these “Keepin’ it fresh” guidelines!
 
And now, the spicy fun part: easy Hatch Chile recipes you can put together quickly to spice up your next dinner! Recipes courtesy of vendor partner Melissa's Produce.

Make Your Own Beautiful Bouquet

• Step-By-Step Guide to DIY Flower Arrangements • 

 
 
Classic Mixed Flower ArrangementWhen people walk by my design area, they will often say, You make that look so easy, or, I wish I could do that. You should teach a class. I always tell them that there are simple designs you can do at home or in the office. It’s easy, plus you can start with any of the great selections in the floral department at your local Brookshire Brothers. We carry a variety of assorted blooms and premade seasonal bouquets, whether you’re looking for the latest general trend or something more particular. 
 
Additionally, we receive flowers on a weekly basis. Feel free to talk to someone in the floral department about which day they arrive so you can pick up the freshest blooms. In my 45+ years in the floral industry, the quality of our mixed bouquets, roses, blooming plants, and seasonal outdoor plants are a great value for the price.
 
Trim stems and add foliage
Once you’ve pick out your favorite flowers, you are DIY ready! First, open up your package and see how many stems in the bouquet that you can use. Usually, there is not much foliage so you might want to purchase a few extra stems of Leather Leaf, a fern-like foliage that will help hold the flowers in place. If you’re unsure what Leather Leaf is, your Brookshire Brothers florist will be happy to help.

Add the packet of floral preservative to a vase with fresh tap water and mix well. Slide your vase to the edge of the counter, and begin taking one stem at a time to measure how tall the tips of greenery should be from the rim of the vase. Start cutting your stems accordingly and add them to the vase in a circular pattern around the rim. When all the foliage is in, begin the same process with your flower stems. Make sure to leave some space between each flower head. The foliage helps support the flowers, which means the stems do not all need to touch the bottom, so long as all of them are under the water level. 
 
Choose Your Vase CarefullyWhen choosing your vase, focus on picking one with an opening that fits the size of your arrangement. In other words, avoid using vase with a mouth that’s too wide for a small amount of flowers. I actually find that an under-sized vase opening is somewhat better than an overly large vase where the flowers can get lost in the overall look.
 
Don't forget: Make Mother's Day extra special with flowers and this Puffed-Pancake Brunch Casserole recipe.
 
Remember, cutting stems is like cutting hair. If it’s too long, you can always take it out and trim it again. However, you can’t add stems back to the flowers when they’ve been cut too short. If you want the head of the flower to be at more of an angle, then you might need to cut it shorter so that it lays more closely to the edge of the vase. Once you’ve added all your stems, tweak it to your liking and then you’re done! Sit back and enjoy the view.

Mary's Mango Pico De Gallo

Ingredients
1/2 medium purple onion, diced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, diced 
1 mango, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Lemon (Half or whole, depending on preference; lime can be substituted)
Jalapeños (Fresh or pickled, depending on preference)
Salt & Pepper to taste
 
Directions 
    • Prepare your produce (chop/dice/etc) as needed. For pickled jalapeños, I used three small peppers. If you'd rather use a fresh jalapeño, be sure to scrape out all the seeds and white flesh in the middle (unless you like your pico de gallo extra spicy!). Also, feel free to use only half a jalapeño if you're not a huge fan of spicy (you can always add more later).
    • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. For the lemon, salt, and pepper, add according to taste.
    • Enjoy!

Krista's Chuy's Knockoff

Ingredients
16 oz sour cream - Consider substituting with plain Greek yogurt for a healthier version!
1 pkg. (1oz) Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
2 whole large jalapeños, seeded
2 cloves of garlic, minced - If you're short on time, you can use a jar of minced garlic too!
1/3 cup of fresh cilantro
1 whole lime, juiced
2-4 tsp of milk
Tortilla Chips for serving!
 
Directions
    • Take the seeds out of the jalapeños.
    • Chop the jalapeños and cilantro (you don't have to worry about chopping these super fine; blending them in the food processor will do this for you)
    • Add jalapenos, cilantro, and garlic to blender. Use whichever setting necessary to chop/puree/ground these ingredients into small bits. You may have to pause the blender occasionally to scrape the sides.
    • Add 16 oz. of sour cream to the blender and blend.
    • Add your lime juice to the blender.
    • Pulse until creamy. 
    • Add milk slowly until you’ve reached your desired consistency. I added 2 tsp.
    • ENJOY!

What's in Season: The Easy Winter Guide
With two-day shipping, online streaming, swipe-right dating, we're living in an instant-click world. However, there are still some things that require extra time and patience—fruits and vegetables included. While you can purchase certain produce all year round, there's often a time and place when you can get them at their best flavor and greatest value. For example, when the temperatures are too cold here in the U.S. to get fresh blueberries—a summer fruit—you'd have to go farther south to get what you wanted, perhaps a two week shipment from Chile—with tax.
 
Our point is, when you shop for produce according to the season, you're guaranteed to pick fruits & vegetables that are not only better tasting, but also the best bang for your buck. Here's a quick list of what you should look for this winter.

A hot pot of chili on a cold winter’s day is one of the most comforting foods in Southern cuisine. This particular recipe is quick and easy, and it features several winter veggies!
 
Butternut squash is a seasonal favorite because of its delicious buttery undertones, plus it’s oh-so-nutritious! Check out this recipe from registered dietitian Angela Larson.
 
Turnips are a delicious low-carb alternative to potatoes with less than half the calories and carbs. Furthermore, they're rich in minerals, B vitamins, vitamin C, and—most importantly—in flavor.
