Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce (Gluten-Free or Original)
posted by Kalyn Denny on December 9, 2014
When you need some healthier comfort food, this delicious Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce can come in handy.
December has to be the month of comfort food, wouldn’t you agree? And one of my favorite ingredients to make healthier comfort foods is this Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce. (And Kudos to this company for having a gluten-free variety of their delicious sauce and clearly labeling the can so people will notice it comes in gluten-free.) When I posted the recipe for Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowls recently, I mentioned how I have been a bit obsessed with this sauce, and after I counted up how many recipes I’ve used it in, I decided it’s time to officially designate this as one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks!
I do want to make one thing clear. Although I consider this a healthy carb-conscious ingredient, the sauce does have 28 carbs per can. (The carb count is the same for both regular and gluten-free varieties.) But you’re not eating it alone, and when you use it in a recipe that makes six servings and includes a lot of healthy protein or vegetables, the amount of carbs per serving will be relatively low.
In Utah I can find Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce at most grocery stores. If you can’t find it where you live you can order Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Saucefrom Amazon.com (although it’s much more expensive that way, sorry!) Now here are some healthy comfort food recipes I’ve enjoyed using this sauce.
