When our Subway client from Albuquerque brought fresh Hatch green chiles for our TV shoot, I snagged the left overs. I somewhat felt like I was stealing the mini shampoo bottle out of a hotel room, but hey, my job doesn't have many perks, so I got to take what I can get. Craig has been hating his life since because I have been obsessed with creating our week-long dinner plan around these stupid chiles. But, as Amy can attest, my single-minded thinking led to some good.
Here is the recipe (for Amy).
Green Chile Fettuccine Alfredo
Alfredo sauce (I used this recipe from Cooking Light- to make the dish somewhat healthy)
Walnuts, toasted and chopped
A bunch of fresh green chiles (I probably used 1/3 cup. I think you can buy these at Rico)
When I was sauteeing the garlic, I also sauteed the green chiles with it. Then, I followed the recipe and topped the dish with toasted walnuts, freshly ground black pepper, and parmesan reggiano.
I know Fettuccine Alfredo is pretty old school, but this version was really spicy, delicious and easy to make. Long live the 90s!
