Carrie, I went to Amazon for some comments for canned Hatch chile, as I have the fresh in the freezer at all times, and have never used the canned. They were all favorable. Some said the canned "hot" were not very hot, but still had good flavor. I'd try them in any Mexican, Southwest, or Tex-Mex dish that is your favorite. Enchiladas, tacos; we love them in braised meat dishes as a surprise ingredient. I've put them in scrambled eggs with cheese. I add them to any dish that I think they will enhance, even if the dish does not call for chile pepper.
