Pimento cheese makes for a great grilled cheese sandwich. Pimento cheese loaded with roasted Hatch chiles makes for an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich. Or dip. Or burger topping. The cheese melts perfectly. And there’s just that slight green chile flavor. Not overpowering, not spicy. Just a really nice pepper flavor. I like that a lot.
If you can’t find Hatch chiles, you can substitute any mild green chile such as a poblano. Or in a pinch you can use canned green chiles. Our market sells 7 ounce cans of roasted green chiles that would work just fine as a substitute in this Hatch chile pimento cheese.
