Hatch Chile Aïoli with Fried Green Tomatoes


Hatch Green Chile Aioli with Fried Green Tomatoes

Here’s one recipe you really need to know how to make: aïoli (pronounced “eye-oh-lee”).

Why do you need this creamy garlic-infused sauce in your kitchen know-how arsenal? Because it’s one of those condiments that can bring a little zip to so many dishes… and there are little ways you can change it to give it a bit more “WOW.”

Like when I added a few roasted Hatch Chiles.

I made Fried Green Tomatoes to go with my Hatch Chile Aïoli. But you can serve this full-flavored sauce with fish or chicken… or add a spoonful or two on top of fresh steamed vegetables to give them a kick.

Making aïoli is similar to making homemade mayonnaise, but a lot easier if you use a food processor or blender. Speaking of mayo, I sometimes use Hatch Chile Aïoli instead of mayonnaise in potato salad for a real taste sensation!

    Wow I didn’t know how easy this sauce was to make! My hubby loves heat in his food and I’m more of a mild flavor girl but this would be great to have on hand to put on his dinners where I use mayo! And I’m sure all of us will love the green tomatoes! Thank you for linking up at Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays. I’ll be pinning this on the Tasty Tuesdays Board & My Dips and Sauces board. Have a great week!

      Thanks for the compliment, girlfriend! I also made this sauce using mayonnaise (cheater, cheater I know), and it was still delicious. I’m so bad, I love it on everything! Love the Tasty Tuesday party!

    I had to come check out your blog after meeting you on Twitter 🙂
    I haven’t had fried green tomatoes in so long and these look fabulous! Tomatoes garlic, lemon and some heat? How perfect – all my favourite flavours. Lovely, fun blog you have here – glad to discover you, Christine. Have a great day!
