Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese

This is a really great appetizer or snack for last-minute get-togethers with friends or for well-planned parties. It’s an updated version of pimento cheese dip, and I call it Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese. The green chilies add a little heat and acidity, and honestly, this is my favorite version of pimento cheese dip so far.

For the chilies, I used Hatch brand diced green chiles. You can serve this dip with fresh vegetables, gluten-free crackers, or corn tortilla chips. It’s really good served with leftover corn tortillas that you simply cut into triangles and fry in vegetable oil. In other words, semi-homemade tortilla chips!
