Happy Hatch Chile Vegan Ranch

Happy Hatch Green Chile Season!

This short lived season only runs from August – September, so you better act fast if you want to enjoy these hotties in their prime! Last year, we made the most delicious ooey gooey hatch green chile mac n’ cheese. But this year, no way jose. I just can’t seem to get comfortable with this crazy hot weather. So making a cool summer dressing sounded way more appealing! It’s great for dipping veggies, using on a salad, or even as a condiment for your meat/fish/poultry of choice!
