Down The Hatch

New Mexico’s Hatch Valley produces one of the most uniquely flavored chiles around: the appropriately named Hatch chili. Chefs agree that the valley’s intense sunlight and cool nights contribute to the Hatch’s delicious meaty flesh and mild-medium heat, making it the perfect choice for chile con queso, chile rellenos, and chile verde. *And you don’t have to stop there – try roasting and adding to salads, soups, stews, dips and sandwiches.

To roast at home:

Place chiles directly on the flame of your stove top and char for 6-8 minutes or until the skin turns completely black and blisters. When black and blistered, place chiles in a metal work bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 10 minutes to steam. Put on rubber gloves (chiles can burn!), remove chiles from the bowl, and rub gently under cold water to remove the skins. (To freeze, remove the stems, membranes, and seeds and freeze in airtight containers or bags. Don’t overcrowd the bags/containers and freeze chiles within 24 hours after packing. Store packages flat in the freezer).

Labor-less Labor Day!

Warm weather and sun bring outdoor fun, like camping and the great American barbecue! Stop by our delis and see what we’ve got on the grill for you. If chicken’s your thing, then you’ve come to the right place: barbecue chicken is ready and waiting in halves, quarters or boneless breasts. Or try Kyle’s BBQ Ribs or our Thai BBQ Salmon —they’ll have you smacking your lips and licking your fingers. In a supporting role, our Broccoli Coleslaw heads up the pack with a fresh and tasty take on an old–time favorite, or try our classic slaw for a more traditional option. We’re also grilling up corn on the cob and serving it as is, as well as using it in some of our favorite recipes, like Sonoran Corn Salad and Grilled Corn Succotash. While the grill is still hot, we’ll be grilling up some garden veggies as well. Finally, no barbecue is complete without potato salad, macaroni salad and egg salad, and boy, do we have a variety to choose from, like our Meadow View Macaroni.

Sour Beer

In the vast world of craft beers, sour beers are some of the most interesting and diverse. Known for their tart and sour taste, some styles can actually be fruity and slightly sweet.

What’s a sour beer? Most breweries must keep a very sterile environment to prevent wild yeast strains from entering their beer. Sour-beer brewers, on the other hand, allow these wild yeast strains to enter the beer, creating the tart taste. Some brewers add fruit, such as cherries or raspberries, while the beer ages.
