Ponche Navideño is a traditional Mexican holiday punch enjoyed in the winter. This flavorful drink is made with fresh and dried fruits like tamarind, prunes, hibiscus, sugar cane, cinnamon, and sweetened with Piloncillo. Ponche Navideño is also often served as a symbol of hospitality and friendship. It is often served with alcohol but tastes great without it as well.
When coming up for an idea for a recipe to write about this week, Joe, our Director of Marketing, and I had a quick back and forth. With what seemed like no hesitation, he fired back a message that would work perfectly with the Product of the Week (POTW) our Ground Hatch Green Chile. “Work it into a rub,” Joe wrote. Well Boss, ask and you shall receive. These bad boys are outstanding. With a few simple ingredients, including Don Juan Chiles Ground Hatch Green Chile, you can truly make this BBQ sizzle in all the right ways.
