Hatch green chile hummus

Hatch green chile hummus

Hatch chiles are in season now, and some stores will even roast them and seed them to save us the trouble; I bought a container and set out to make hummus.

Pick hot or mild chiles depending on your preference. If you have no access to the hatch chiles (produced in the town of Hatch , New Mexico) then any other green chile pepper would be a fine substitute. You can also use canned peppers .
