The Best Recipes Start With The Best Ingredients
Well, that’s what I heard on those popular cable channel cooking channels anyway. Actually, I’m a regular watcher of Sunday morning cooking shows, I love gathering new techniques and ideas. I love cooking and I love creating new recipes. When Smart and Final told me about the upcoming hatch chile roastings I jumped at the opportunity to create a recipe that included roasted hatch chiles. That’s where this Hatch Chile Omelette recipe came from. This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.
There are tons of great hatch chile recipes in the Melissa’s Hatch Chile Cookbook. While checking out all of the great recipes I also learned that fresh hatch chiles are only grown in the Mesilla Valley of New Mexico and are only available for a very short amount of time each year during the months of August and September. So you gotta get them fresh while they last!
Did You Know: A Single fresh medium-sized green chile has much Vitamin C as 6 oranges!
Roasted Hatch Chile Omelette Recipe
1/4 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 Chopped Roasted Hatch Chile
Bacon or Cooked Ham
Salt & Pepper to taste
BUTTER (real only please)
An omelette sized skillet (so important!!)
The secret to a perfectly cooked omelette begins with perfectly scrambled eggs. – Desiree Eaglin
Vigorously whisk eggs in a bowl with a fork until well blended. Add 1 teaspoon of water. Whisk more. Whisk the egg mixture until smooth. Then whisk it some more. Add salt and pepper to taste (I personally prefer more salt than pepper). Whisk egg mixture some more. Think your done whisking? Whisk it again.
Here’s a second secret: The secret to perfectly scrambled eggs is a crapton of butter. Add a hefty butter pad to a warm small skillet (the more butter the better obviously). *Your skillet needs to be small, the size of your cooked omelette actually. The uncooked scrambled eggs will fill the size of the skillet you use.
Allow egg to cook until you see small bubbles and the edges look like yellow and cooked. Using a LARGE spatula flip the egg over (it’s ok if it folds or splashes, that doesn’t mean it’s ruined).
Add cheese, bacon and roasted hatch chiles to one half of your egg. Fold the other side of the egg over on top of your ingredients. Allow to cook 2-3 minutes. Flip. Allow the other side to cook 2-3 minutes. Remove from skillet. Top with extra cheese, green onions, avocado slices and whatever else you can think of (like sour cream and extra cheese, not strawberries you weirdo!).
Smart & Final IS the place to shop
A few of my kids started a tutoring class that was conveniently located near a Smart & Final this summer. Which was so insanely conveinent for this busy (albeit funny and charming) mom of four, because then I was able to shop while they learned. I love, love, love shopping at Smart and Final. They have the best prices!
