About Hatch Peppers

Hatch peppers, also known as New Mexico chilies, add a little kick and flavor to the quesadilla. These peppers typically available only in August and September and are prized for their rich smoky and unique taste. If you are making this chutney when hatch peppers are not in season, substitute about 1 cup of roasted green chilies for the hatch peppers.

The chutney also makes a great spread on toasts or as an accompaniment for cheese (namely cheddar).

How to Make Turkey Sandwich with Apple Hatch Pepper Chutney

For the apple hatch pepper chutney:

  1. Char the peppers. If using fresh Hatch peppers, char the peppers over gas flame or in the broiler until blackened on all sides. Enclose in paper bag for 10 minutes. After roasting the peppers, carefully peel off the charred skin. Remove seeds and dice the peppers.
  2. Add ingredients to saucepan. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the peppers, green apple, sugar, vinegar and ¼ cup of water.
  3. Simmer chutney. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture becomes the consistency of a jam, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Store the chutney in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.

For serving:

  1. Assemble sandwiches. Toast the two slices of sourdough until they’re golden brown. Spread mayonnaise on the bottom slice of bread. Layer the turkey followed by about ¼ cup of the apple hatch pepper chutney, the provolone, tomato and avocado.
  2. Serve. Close the sandwich and cut in half. Serve immediately.

    • I use fresh hatch chilies in this recipe. I’ve gone ahead and added a step for roasting the peppers to clarify that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
