Recipe: Chef Linton Hopkins’ Green Chili

A lighter take on a traditional Southern dish, this noodle recipe from chef Linton Hopkins–supporting Atlanta restaurants Holeman & Finch, Restaurant Eugene, H&F Burger, Hop’s Chicken and C. Ellet’s–is exploding with flavor and ideal for sharing Super Bowl party guests, or whipping up on a chilly winter night. “We love making chili and stews in your home, and this one really came out [my wife] Gina,” says Hopkins. “This recipe is a more glowing, casual chili that is not quite as significant as the chili you would normally think of particularly about Super Bowl parties. It celebrates the freshness of chili peppers rather than this super smoked caliber. This recipe has been bolstered when we visited New Mexico. They’ve a ton of very amazing green chilis. That is when I inserted the canned hatched chilis for that special New Mexico flavor”
