    When you have two foods perfectly in season, you are in tall corn.

    Right now, this very minute, Hatch chiles are showing up in markets across the land, on their yearly migration from the New Mexican valley where they’re grown. Rich tasting, packed with green chile flavor and available in mild, medium and hot, these are the “it” chile of August. Come mid-to late-September, they’ll be gone.

    Pair Hatch with grapes – sweet, sweet candy orbs from California’s Central Valley – and you have an unforgettable sweet-hot flavor combo. Add some grilled onions into the mix and suddenly you have deepened the flavor, the umami, and the addiction.

    Eat this with roasted meats, with tortilla chips, as a relish to pep up a quiche or casserole – anywhere you need something with interest to perk up your plate.

    Recipe: Hatch Chile, Grape and Grilled Onion Salsa

    Summary: Sweet, hot, deeply flavored fresh Hatch chile salsa goes well with any roasted meats or poultry, simply with tortilla chips, or as a plate pepper-upper.

    Ingredients

    • 3 Hatch chiles
    • 2 onions (yellow or white)
    • 1 ½ cups red grapes (I used Red Muscato Grapes)

    Instructions

    1. Roast the Hatch chiles, allow them to steam and peel the skin off. (Read How to roast Hatch chiles if you are not certain how to do this.) Remove stem and seeds and chop finely. Add to a medium size mixing bowl.
    2. Peel the onions and slice them into thick rounds. (Read how to grill onions on the George Foreman if you are not certain how to do this.) When they are cool enough to handle, chop them finely and add to the bowl.Grilled Onions on Shockingly Delicious
    3. Wash and dry grapes. Remove stems and cut each grape into 4ths or 8ths, depending on the size of the grape and your patience level. Add to the bowl and stir gently to combine all three ingredients.
    4. Makes about 2 cups salsa.

    These are bright, rosy red, crisp and very, very sweet. Although they have a small seed inside, it is so tiny as to not be noticeable. They are good in a fruit or green salad, perfect on a cheese plate, or tucked into a lunch. They’re grown in California’s Central valley.
