It’s hatch green chile season, where the regional New Mexico chiles, sourced from the town of Hatch, are popping up on menus, including those found in Austin restaurants. These chiles are notably spicier than California and Anaheim peppers. The prime harvest period usually runs from late August to October.

Eater gathered the best hatch green chile dishes found in Austin restaurants to make it easier for those pepper fiends. This means a dedicated Tex-Mex menu from Chuy’s, seafood specials from Garbo’s, ramen from Ramen Tatsu-ya, and other spots. Even Austin-area supermarkets are getting into the green chile fun by hosting roasting events at Central Market, Whole Foods, and Sprout’s Farmers Market.

For other like dishes, scope out the city’s best Tex-Mex restaurants, tacos, and burgers.
