Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, and favorite cooking gear. The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell.
Oh, how I wish I lived in the southwestern part of the country, where canned Hatch chile peppers are the norm. Here in the Northeast, I always find four-ounce cans of roasted green chiles from Ortega (or other similar brands) at the supermarket, and I keep a few cans in my pantry at all times. These roasted chiles are great for adding kick to my southwestern cooking, and because they're mild (see the scale on the side of the can?), I even add them to scrambled eggs. When you're shopping, read the label carefully; pickled jalapeños, which have a completely different taste and are a great topping for nachos, come in nearly identical cans to the roasted green chiles. Once you've tried the roasted chiles, you'll find yourself dumping that entire can into soups and stews, and all of your favorite Tex-Mex dishes.
