Hatch Chile Pecan Pancakes

It seems as though most of our recipes for Hatch chile week are just an update of other recipes we've made in the past, but that's ok, because the Hatch chiles definitely add their own unique flavors. Here's another Hatch-chile-for-breakfast recipe— Hatch chile pecan pancakes based off of these jalapeño pecan pancakes! Hatch chiles are the best!


Sorry for the maple syrup flood on the plate!
