The proper terms are Hatch chile or green chile but never “hatch chilies”. The word “chile” refers to the type of vegetable and Hatch is a town in a valley in New Mexico but NOT a specific variety of green chile. Green chile, the pepper-vegetable comes in numerous varieties grown throughout New Mexico and elsewhere. As with potatoes, recipes don’t usually say Idaho potatoes or “idaho potatoes” when they really mean russet, Yukon Gold, red, etc.) “Hatch” (brand name) green chile AND chile products are available canned and sold in the Hispanic food section of many grocery stores. Authentic Hatch chile and other freshly roasted green chilies (varieties) from New Mexico are distinctive in flavor and superior products of the soil and climate and are an integral part of the cuisine, economy and culture of the entire state.
