Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; spread Hatch chile peppers on top.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler, turning once, until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and seal tightly with plastic wrap. Let cool, about 20 minutes. Peel and seed peppers; dice flesh.

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in diced chile peppers and tomatoes. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour into the pot.

  • Pour broth into the pot; add cumin, chili powder, and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until flavors combine, at least 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth if desired.

Use fresh or frozen chiles shipped from someplace like The Chili Guys. I personally use either Hot Hatch or Pueblo Hot. I also dump in the oil from the bags to add a little extra depth and heat.
