Hatch Chile Cream Cheese Spread is a creamy dip loaded with smoky hatch green chilies. It is great for game day, BBQs and parties.
Each August I look forward to two things: tomatoes and hatch green chilies. I shared my new favorite Tomato Tart highlighting fresh summer tomatoes and today I am sharing this Hatch Chile Cream Cheese Spread.
It is the perfect way to celebrate green chile season! It is loaded with roasted New Mexico Green Chiles and spices. It’s perfect for spreading on crackers or breads.
Let’s talk about what you need to make it.
This Hatch Chile Cream Cheese is really easy to make! Simply combine all of the ingredients together and voila! The hardest thing about making this recipe, is giving the flavors a chance to meld. It takes at least 30 minutes in the fridge but the wait is worth it!
STEP #1: Roast the green chile peppers in the oven. Transfer the chiles to a brown bag, and close tightly. Let sit for 15 minutes then peel.
STEP #2: Use gloves to carefully remove the seeds and stems from the peppers. Chop.
STEP #3: Use a hand held mixer to whip the cream cheese. Fold in the remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Serve.

Store any leftover dip in the refrigerator and use within 3 – 5 days. Allow to come to room temperature before serving so that it is easy to spread/dip.
