The Roasted Hatch Chile & Jalapeño Cheese Dip is joining Trader Joe’s list of popular Hatch Chile items the chain has carried over the years, such as its Hatch Chile Mac & Cheese, Green & Red Hatch Chile Flakes, and the most recent Unexpected Cheddar Cheese Spread with Hatch Chile, which quickly became a customer favorite. “If that ever gets discontinued I’ll be personally knocking on Joe’s front door. I remember back when it was first introduced!!” commented one fan on the Trader Joe’s subreddit.
The new dip contains sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, cream cheese, roasted Hatch green chile peppers, and jalapeño peppers. Unlike many Trader Joe’s dips, such as the Pimento Cheese and Tzatziki you can find in the refrigerated section, this one can be found in the freezer aisle. Some customers are already wondering — and hoping — it compares to the store’s Garlic Asiago Dip. “I loved the garlic one! I have to try this one,” wrote one self-professed Trader Joe’s enthusiast, Instagram user @traderjoesnew.
