Several finalists will be chosen to compete in a taste-off before judges at select Central Market stores.
“Our customers are creative cooks, and the contest is your chance to share your favorite Hatch recipe with the world,” Central Market writes in promotional materials.
Contestants can make whatever dish they want, as long as it includes Hatch chiles as an ingredient.
