A New Marinade for New Mexico Hatch Chile Lovers

Stubb's Green Chile Marinade
New Mexico is famous for its green chili, a thick and hearty, pale green, tangy-spicy stew made with Hatch peppers, chicken, onions, garlic and savory spices. The key ingredient in green chili is the Hatch pepper, which is also called New Mexico pepper. Hatch chiles are also used in southwestern barbecue sauces and marinades that complement everything from chicken and poultry to beef, pork, venison and other red meats. New Mexico style green chile marinades also work quite well with fish, shrimp and other seafood as well as with grillable vegetables like mushrooms and summer squash, because they tend to be lighter or more subtle in flavor rather than earthy or robust like chipotle or habanero based marinades can be.

Fresh Hatch peppers are hard to find on the east coast or pretty much anywhere outside of New Mexico because of their short growing season and limited growing area. As a result, they are highly prized by chefs and cooks who want to make authentic New Mexico style recipes and sauces featuring the distinctively bright, moderately spicy flavor of this elusive pepper.

If you want to experience the zesty flavors of New Mexico Hatch peppers but cannot find the chiles in your local stores, I have good news: The Carolina Sauce online store now carries a wonderful new green chile marinade made in the traditional way with Hatch peppers, lime juice and other all-natural ingredients for genuine southwestern flavor!

Stubb's Green Chile Marinade comes to us from Texas' first name in all things barbecue: Stubb's. This baby is appropriately moderate in spiciness (the only hot chiles used in this sauce are Hatch peppers and jalapenos), with a delightful citrus tang from lime and pineapple juices as well as orange and lemon zest. Garlic, onion and a secret blend of spices add savory depth, while a touch of brown sugar provides mellow harmony to this symphony of Southwestern flavors and spice. And like all of Stubb's barbecue sauces, marinades and rubs, this marinade is made with only the finest all-natural ingredients.

Buy Stubb's Green Chile Marinade online while it's on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, and you can enjoy New Mexico style barbecue and grilling anytime of year, anywhere you can grill, smoke or cook.

Zestfully yours,
