Hatch chiles are in season for only 8 weeks a year, 10 weeks if the weather is extra warm. Our local markets roast and sell them in 25-lb boxes. We buy 50 lbs every year, package them, and freeze them. This flavorful recipe can be served in tortillas, over rice, or by itself.

Hubby and I are Hatch chile fanatics. We buy 50 pounds of roasted Hatch chiles when they are in season. We portion them out and freeze them so they are readily available. This chile verde does not call for tomatillos because I wanted the chiles to be the star of the recipe.

Sea Bass San Sebastian

Rating: Unrated

Chilean sea bass, also known as Patagonian toothfish, has landed on lots of 'do not eat this' lists due to overfishing, but the fish can be found through sustainable sources. Flavored mayonnaise keeps the sea bass moist while it's cooking, and you can create countless sauce variations by changing the seasonings. The recipe is inspired by the cuisine of San Sebastian.
