I’m going to let everyone else bring the hamburgers, steaks, fried chicken and potato salad to the Labor Day potluck tomorrow.

I’m bringing something a little special, a lot seasonal, a little frou-frou and a lot tasty: California dried Mission figs, topped with fresh goat cheese flavored with roasted Hatch chiles and snipped chives.

Can you stand it? You only have to cool your jets for about 10 minutes, and they’ll be all done, plated and ready for you to snitch. Go ahead, I’ll make more.

Hatch, Chive & Chevre Figs on Shockingly Delicious

Recipe: Hatch, Chive & Chevre Figs

Summary: Sweet dried California figs are topped with a rich chevre flavored with roasted New Mexican Hatch chiles and chives – the perfect appetizer!


  • Redwood Hill Farm Traditional Chevre on Shockingly Delicious3 Hatch chiles, medium heat
  • 1 (4-ounce) container Redwood Hill Farm Traditional Chevre (or your favorite brand)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives (I grew these on my window sill)
  • 10 dried Mission figs


  1. Roast Hatch chiles on the grill or as described here. (You may do this ahead of time to save prep time on the day you want to make this.) Peel the skin off, remove stem and seeds, and dice.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add chevre and beat for 30 seconds until soft. Add chiles and chives and stir well to combine.
  3. Remove stems from dried figs and slice figs in half vertically. Top each fig half with flavored chevre, either using a spoon, a piping bag or a snack-size zipper-top bag with a corner cut off (to mimic a piping bag).
  4. Place on a pretty platter and serve.
  5. Allow 2 fig halves for each person. Serves 10.Hatch, Chive & Chevre Figs on Shockingly Delicious
