During my years in New Mexico, I loved Green Chile Season.  And the smell of the roasting green chile in the air was just unbelievably amazing.     I totally fell in love with green chiles during this time of my life

We start our Green Chile Cheese bread by mixing our yeast with warm water, then adding room temperature butter, sugar, salt and lukewarm milk.  Add this point add the chopped fresh green chiles and the grated cheddar cheese and combine.  If you are not fortunate to live near an area that selling freshly roasted Hatch Green Chile, it can be purchased and shipped to you.   Find it here> Hatch Green Chile or you could substitute>  Hatch Valley 505 Flame Roasted green chile in a jar.

Sounds delicious. Has anyone tried this at 7,000’ elevation? Adjustments?


Thursday 2nd of February 2023

I'm not sure is my honest answer. I have never lived nor cooked at that elevation. I have baked this with these directions at 3,900 elevation and my present elevation of 1,719. I'm so sorry I was unable to help you. But please let us know if you do make the adjustments.

If you don't have fresh roasted chile and used canned chile, make sure to drain the liquid off. Otherwise, you'll need quite a bit of extra flour which causes there to be quite a bit more dough than will reasonably fit into two loaf pans! Still quite tasty though. Wish the cheese flavor came through a bit more. Perhaps next batch I'll add a bit more cheese or sharp cheddar for a bit more cheese flavor.

As soon as I read the recipe title I knew this was yours! A local corner grocery makes jalapeno cheese bread, but I like green chilies more. I made your green chile strips for burgers recently...will have to post about that. Very good!Thanks for linking, Evelyn!
