A note about serious food allergies
Hatch chiles get their name from the town of the same name in New Mexico, where the soil and growing conditions lead to their subtly spicy flavor. In this dish, the chile is mixed with flavorful ranch seasoning and tangy sour cream, making a sauce that bathes the chicken with pure deliciousness. The meal completes itself with sweet butternut squash with cheese and crunchy pepitas.
