I’d hate to admit it, but I literally have never heard of a hatch pepper before until this past summer. I’ve seen them all over the internet, and constantly see them on sale in the grocery stores so I had to see what all the fuss was about.

What the heck have I been missing? An opportunity to make an amazing roasted hatch pepper queso dip – that’s what!

If you’re like me and have been living under a rock apparently, hatch peppers, are an amazing pepper that are mild in heat and have a great flavor when roasted.

I took advantage of the roasting grill on my sideburner of my grill and stared getting a beautiful char on my hatch peppers.

After roasting them, to prepare them, scrape the outer char off, and de-seed. Or, if you’re lazy like me say, “Screw it – it’s all going in the queso!” I have no regerts. No regerts what-so-ever.

This is a prime candidate for a game-day appetizer. Now that football (and hockey) season is ready to begin, this queso dip, is exactly what I’m craving.

Roasted Hatch Pepper Queso Dip comes together in no time. You’re basically making a roux with some butter, flour garlic and onion. Stir in a little milk. Melt in your cheese’s and stir in the roasted hatch peppers.

You can get the Queso Dip on the table before kickoff!

A little tip, get creative with your cheese’s if you want to have something a little more flavorful. Smoked Gouda, maybe a little Asiago for some dryness?

Or just keep it simple, and go with Cheddar and Monterrey. That’s how I’m doing it!
