Hatch Chiles: Fort Worth heats up just before Fall

See also

Every year about this time, Fort Worth gets smokin' hot...Hatch chile smokin' hot that is. Although each and every grocery store in the Dallas/Fort worth area does not roast them for you, they are still available for you to do so yourself.

Sprouts Farmers Market at I-20 & S. Hulen St. is still roasting them up for you. Click here for more information.

These long green chiles are exclusively grown in the great farmlands of Hatch, New Mexico. Their robust spicy flavor and zesty aroma makes them a beloved pepper for chile fans. Because of the Hatch chile's limited season - late summer/early fall - pepper aficionados all over the country flock to New Mexico's famous Hatch Chile Festival each year over Labor Day weekend. Luckily, local residents can get their fix at Sprouts. This month, our network of family farmers in New Mexico is supplying Sprouts and Sunflower stores with loads of the authentic Hatch chiles. So hurry on over to Sprouts and stock up!

OK, so aside from the annual Hatch Hoopla, why would eating these chiles - or any other, provide health benefits?

The good news is you don't have to burn off the surface of your tongue to reap nutritional benefits. The capsaicin in even the mildly hot varieties helps to fight inflammation, relieve pain, supports cardiovascular benefits, helps to clear congestion, and supports your efforts to ward off cancers, ulcers, diabetes and aids in your battle with weight loss.
