Heather Bransom Walker shared this great sounding recipe on the Bountiful Baskets Recipes board:
Hatch Chile Apple Cobbler
- For the filling:
- 2 to 4 Hatch green chiles (about 4 to 8 ounces, depending on how spicy you want it)
- 4 Granny Smith apples (about 1 3/4 pounds), peeled, cored and diced
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- For the crust:
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup whole milk
- For serving: Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if you like
- Roast the chiles under the broiler until blackened, about 5 minutes per side. Place chiles in a paper sack or plastic food-storage bag, close it tight and let the chiles steam for 20 minutes. Take the chiles out of the bag and rub off the skin. Remove seeds and stems and dice. Toss the diced chiles with the diced apples, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and brown sugar.
- Preheat the oven to 350. To make the crust, in a large cast-iron skillet, melt the butter on low heat. Once melted, turn off the heat. Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and milk until a batter is formed. Pour the batter over the butter and do not stir. Spread evenly on top the diced chiles and apples, and bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until brown and bubbling. I eat it warm right of the pan, but it’s also good with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream, if you prefer.
- Note: If you don’t have access to Hatch chiles, you can use regular Anaheim chiles. You can also substitute 2 jalapeño chiles or 1 poblano chile.
