It's Hatch season, and I've got 2 bushels roasted, cleaned and in the freezer! I'll admit it, I am addicted to the amazing flavor of Hatch. I have learned a valuable lesson though. While digging through my freezer to clear space for my new crop, I came across a chunk of Ham I'd forgotten about. It may have had a bit of burn, but no worries, I could always go the route of Ham Salad. Then, a revelation! Hatch Ham Salad! So I ground the Ham, added a huge pile of Hatch...then added a few more, mixed it all with some other ingredients, and I had lunch and dinner on it the next 2 days. It was about the middle of the second afternoon that the lava started to flow, and after another full day to purge, I realized and now fully accept that there is such a thing as too many Hatch Chiles.
