chips iOne evening I went to a potluck dinner with a new group of girlfriends. I was late to sign-up and ended up bringing what I least enjoy eating– dessert.

Upon arrival, I walked into the kitchen and said my hellos. All the food was dispersed on a large kitchen island. Starving, I threw down the dessert and beelined it to the salty dips. Guacamole, salsa and something with cream cheese.

I was happy with my options. However what stands out in my memory were the chips.bowl and chipsThere was a bowl, piled high with golden tortilla chips lightly dusted with a reddish hue. They tasted homemade and were covered with a salty spice combo. I scanned the table– bags of tortilla chips with name brand logos were scattered about, but these chips were like a city on a hill.tomatillos blogI’m getting seconds on these before anyone else discovers how good they are.

And I did just that. Probably not the most polite form of food etiquette, but they were THAT good.

“So um, who brought these chips?” I started to ask my new friends.

‘I did. They’re from Market Street,” a new face said.hatch chilesUnmistakable flavor and freshness.

We are going to be good friends, chips.

Now, when I go to a dinner party and see this familiar friend, I’m delighted.chips blogWhen I was developing Hatch Green Chile Tomatillo Salsa I first went to Market Street to pick-up my favorite tortilla chips. However, the recipe itself was still in its early stages and it needed something else– an element to balance all the tart tomatillo and lime flavors.

Wandering the store I came to the dairy section and Market Street’s selection of Mexican dairy products. Bingo. The salsa needed Mexican crema.Mexican cremaI came home, unloaded the goods and started to chop and puree. The aroma that flowed from these fresh ingredients was a delight.
