August means it’s “Hatch” season. The first green chile have arrived but I haven’t found any roasters set up yet so I just picked up a few to get started. The first thing I wanted to make was some salsa so I went to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh tomatoes. But as usual I get caught up in all the fruits and veggies and picked up some zucchini and corn too. I had recently been drooling over a post from Kevin at “Closet Cooking” for Jalapeno Popper Corn Fritters which gave me the idea to make fritters with the Hatch green chile. I tweaked the recipe a bit and made a zucchini version too. I topped them with some Fire Roasted Salsa and Flamethrower Sauce. They were quite filling and really tasty, enough to make a whole meal out of them.
