For some of the rest of the country, September and fall foods might mean pumpkins, a nip in the air, or a sweater thrown over the shoulders while sipping a hot drink.

Here in Southern California, we’re often still in the September heat storm of summer, as we have been for the past week, and warming, cozy fall spices are far, far from our minds.

We’re still obsessing over Hatch chiles, the August-September seasonal chile that comes to us straight from New Mexico. We’ve appropriated these chiles for our own, roasting them, sweating and peeling them and using them in all kind of things. Did you check out my 50 recipes you need right now for Hatch? I’ll pause while you do that. These chiles are worth it.

Are you back? Then let’s get to work celebrating fall OUR way, with Hatch Chile Hummus. I’ve stuffed this healthy dip full of mild Hatch – enough to give you their wonderful flavor, but not a lot of heat. If you’re a heat-seeker, feel free to use hot Hatch instead.

It’s Hatch Hummus time!

Want it hotter? If you’d like it hotter, feel free to substitute hot Hatch chiles, and start with 1 or 2. Once you taste the heat level, you can stop there, or add more to suit yourself.
