Hatch Chile Chocolate Chip Cookies give a punch of heat and a unique twist on the regular ol’chocolate chip cookies we know so well!
Chocolate Chip Cookies are definitely life’s biggest comfort food. Who doesn’t love a warm cookie straight from the oven, dipped in a huge glass of milk? Of course, it’s hard to eat just one! But everything is ok in moderation – right?
These cookies aren’t your traditional chocolate chip cookie though – they are just a wee bit different. They combine butter, with flour, sugar, chocolate chips and vanilla extract, along with green chiles.
Definitely a twist on the old time favorite and a wonderful way to give them some heat.
I have always wondered how it would taste to throw hatch chiles in a chocolate chip cookie. Using green chiles can be a bit of a gamble. Some are hot, and some are not-so-hot… So you never really know what you are going to get when you take that bite.
Believe it or not, the heat is balanced out by the chocolate chips. You can easily turn up the heat by dicing up 2 green chiles. Or play it safe by only using 1/2 – 1… depending on your cookie audience. The cookie itself is perfectly chewy, and buttery. Not crispy but not too soft, perfectly lumpy and buttery in all the right places.
See the speckles of roasted green chiles in those cookies? They are the perfect accompaniment to these perfectly soft, chewy, hatch chile chocolate chip cookie.
If you love green chiles, you’ll love Hatch Chile Chocolate Chip Cookies. Enjoy them at home with a huge glass of milk or coffee, or take them to your next get together.
Your guests will enjoy this change on a traditional comfort food and they’ll be the hit of the gathering.
