Hatch Chile Pesto

The Gracious Gourmet

Crafted By: Nancy Wekselbaum

Bridgewater, CT

Green roasted peppers and hatch chilies create an elevated style of pesto with a underlying heat. Garlic, cilantro, and onions round out the Southwestern flavor of this uniquely American take on the Mediterranean classic. Perfectly paired with chilaquiles or huevos rancheros Gracious Gourmet's Hatch Chile Pesto is the ideal complement to breakfast items in need of a kick. We suggest adding the condiment to ground pork and traditional Mexican spices for a green chorizo, or used with burrata and fried squash blossoms for a unique springtime treat.

 

The Gracious Gourmet

Founder Nancy baked her first cake at nine years old, nearly setting her childhood house aflame. While her mother told her to never cook again, it was already too late: her passion for all things culinary had taken hold and would become a life-long obsession. For years, Nancy's love of cooking mostly benefited her friends and family, until in 2006 she established Gracious Gourmet at the recommendation of a dear friend.
