Calabasitas is traditional New Mexico comfort food with Hatch Chile

Hatch Chili Season is typically from mid-late August through September, so grab your hatch, give it a roast and settle in to a traditional New Mexico Dish that is satisfying, a bit spicy, and comfort food at it's finest. 


A traditional New Mexican food - it's fast, filling, and delicious!

Servings: 4-6

Prep time: 10

Cook time: 30


  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 90/10)
  • 1 summer squash, sliced then chopped
  • 1 green or yellow zucchini, sliced, then chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 hatch chiles, chopped (or used canned)
  • 2 small potatoes, diced
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Knorr caldo de tomato (or 1 small can tomato sauce)
  • Cilantro


  1. Brown the ground beef until just starting to brown.  Add the remaining vegetables and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes to soften.
  2. Add the broths, and tomato, a handful of cilantro and simmer for 30 minutes or so without a lid, so the sauce thickens just a bit. 
  3. Serve with additional cilantro.
