Corner Store is inviting customers to “Get Hatched” with four new food offerings that feature authentic Hatch chiles from New Mexico.
Beginning Sept. 1, Corner Stores is serving up a slow-roasted turkey puff pie filled with Hatch chiles and cheddar cheese and a Hatch chile seasoned grilled chicken taquito with pepper jack cheese. On the breakfast menu, is a Hatch chile and egg breakfast taco made with homemade flour tortillas and a mouthwatering signature kolache with Hatch chile Kiolbassa sausage.
Corner Store’s $4 breakfast includes two kolaches or breakfast tacos paired with a Cibolo Mountain coffee or 32-ounce fountain drink.
This year for the first time, Corner Store served as the official sponsor of the 43rd annual Hatch Chile Festival in Hatch, New Mexico on Aug. 30-31. In addition to participating in the parade with a Hatch chili decorated whoopie pie food truck, Corner Store foodies will judge the salsa and green chile cook-off competitions.
“Americans increasingly celebrate the use of fresh, seasonal ingredients like Hatch chiles,” said Richard Poye, Corner Store’s director of food service. “At Corner Store, we’re not the typical convenience store, we are a go-to destination for breakfast, lunch and sometimes even dinner for our busy customers. We want to give our customers food that’s fresh, exciting and packed with taste.”
Other new fall offerings include a spinach and feta puff pie for $1.99 and a pumpkin spice whoopie pie for 99 cents.
The new treats are part of Corner Store’s signature line of Fresh Choices foods baked or prepared fresh in the store’s kitchen. Other items include sausage kolaches made with sweet bread, cookies, donuts and breakfast tacos on homemade tortillas.
On the roller grill, Corner Store offers a variety of signature-label all-beef hot dogs and sausages on white or wheat buns.
In addition to Fresh Choices baked and packaged goods, the Corner Stores carry U Force energy and sport drinks, Cibolo Mountain coffee, FC bottled soda, Flavors2Go fountain drinks and 20-ounce ICEES for only $1.
