Hatch Chile Express is the dream of Jimmy and Jo Lytle, farmers of the Hatch Valley. Thirty years ago Jimmy and Jo opened their doors to sell chile products grown on their farm. They started with fresh Hatch chile, then added red chile pods and powder. The business expanded with the addition of decorative chile ristras and other items like magnets, t-shirts, aprons, caps, and mugs, as requested by customers. The Lytles now offer flame roasted, hand peeled frozen Hatch Chile along with freshly picked products; Hatch chile pods and powders in several sizes and several heat levels. Customers can select from edible or decorative ristras. Our newest product line includes Hatch Green Chile Salsa, Chile Verde and Chile Colorado made with chile grown on the farm.
