How to Incorporate Seasonal Flavors in your Event Catering: Hatch Chili Mac and Cheese

Hatch Chili Mac Cheese

Hatch Chili Mac Cheese

One of the most important factors to consider when planning a catered event is seasonality. Ask your Dallas caterer about what ingredients are in season during the time your event will occur. Your caterer in Dallas should also recommend popular food items from the area and incorporate them into your menu as well! This time of year, in the Southwest United States is known as Hatch Chile Season! As a caterer in Dallas, our culinary teams love to spice up traditional dishes with Hatch Chiles every year – one of our favorites is Hatch Chile Mac and Cheese! Here is how you can re-create this super simple but delicious dish at home!

Hatch Chili Mac and Cheese

Serves (4-6)


2 Large Hatch Chile Peppers

8 oz of Elbow Macaroni

6 oz Whipping Cream

4 oz Smoked Cheddar grated

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 teaspoon Minced Garlic

1 teaspoon Butter


Over an open flame, roast both sides of the Hatch Chiles until they blister. Place the blistered Chiles in a covered dish (such as a bowl with plastic wrap) and let them sit for about 5 minutes. While they sit, the Chiles will begin to sweat. Rinse the Chiles in cold water until their skin has been removed (if you have sensitive hands, you may want to wear gloves). Remove the seeds and finely dice the Chiles.

In a 4-quart saucepan add 2.5 quarts of water and the kosher salt. Once this begins to boil add the elbow pasta stirring regularly. Elbow takes about 9-11 minutes to cook. Once cooked remove from heat and drain

Meanwhile in another 4-quart saucepan melt the butter and add the diced Hatch Green Chiles and garlic. Sautee for 1 minute stirring with rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Reduce heat to medium and add whipping cream. Once cream begins to simmer (not boil), slowly add in the smoked cheddar 1 ounce at a time, using a wire whisk to stir.

Add your warm, drained elbow pasta to your cheese sauce, top with cheese or breadcrumbs – or both and enjoy!

Wedding Catering: Which Reception Style Is Best for Your Wedding?

GTexas Buffet Catering

A wedding is many things: a ceremony, a party, the joining of two families – the list is a mile long! When you look past the décor, flowers and the dress, a wedding is a celebration of love! While planning your wedding, spend some extra time and consideration on the most important part of any celebration – the food! By now you’ve probably determined what your wedding ceremony will look like. Maybe it’s traditional, classic, boho or casual – let your imagination run wild. Whatever your theme is, it should reflect the style and personality of you and your fiancé! The same rule applies to the after-wedding reception. Your wedding caterer in Dallas will help complete the vision you have for your wedding celebration that you want to share with your guests.

Sit-Down Dinner

The sit-down dinner is traditional and often used. The tables will be set before the dinner with centerpieces, plates, silver and glasses. Guests are generally served 3 or more courses by wait staff as they sit at assigned seating.

The benefit is that everyone has a seat at a table, and all are served at the same time. This lets you easily manage the time at your reception for the other activities you may want, such as speeches, cake cutting, special dances, etc. The sit-down dinner also allows you to easily budget for the amount of food you need with little waste. It is also simple. The bride can rest easy knowing that the sit-down dinner is handled by the wedding caterer and she won’t have to worry about any details.

The Buffet

A buffet is served at one or more long tables. The guest takes a plate, chooses preferred foods as they move down the table, and then goes to an assigned or unassigned table to enjoy their meal. This wedding catering option works wonderfully for large parties of 100+. As you can imagine, a buffet allows for more food variety which is great for guests with special diets and a variety of palates while saving costs on waitstaff.

Food Stations

Food stations are similar to the buffet option in that guests will choose their own food and seating can be assigned or unassigned. The difference is that one long table is not used. Instead, several different food stations, with one theme each, are placed around the reception area. There will be several related foods at each station. For example, a Barbeque food station could have Smoked Turkey, Mesquite Smoked Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze, Seasoned Pinto Beans, Mac & Cheese, Sweet Cabbage Slaw, BBQ Sauce and Skillet Corn Bread. Another station may hold all the fixings for Fried Chicken and Waffles and another station may house a selection of salads or even a selection of desserts. The type and number of food stations is determined by the number of guests and the preferences of the bride and groom. This option works wonderfully for large groups (100+). The large variety of food can easily accommodate specialty diets and the theme of your reception. Another advantage of this reception style is that guests may mingle and interact easier as they wander from station to station.

Hors D’oeuvre Reception

The perfect choice for a smaller wedding reception is an hors d’oeuvre reception. Your wedding caterer can station, or tray pass the hors d’oeuvres to your guests during the reception. You can choose from a variety of options ranging from light to heavy, Asian-inspired to traditional American flavors, or a custom menu created just for you! An hors d’oeuvre reception is an ideal option for keeping guests entertained during a cocktail hour before dinner for a bride who doesn’t wish to serve a full meal at her wedding.

Make sure that your wedding reception is as beautiful as the one you planned on Pinterest and tastes as good as it looks! Contact us to begin planning your wedding catering today!

Worldly Cuisine, Locally Grown

The Reeves Family Farm has begun planting! The G Texas Catering Culinary team loves to utilize fresh, local produce from Reeves Family Farm to create delicious, nutrient-rich meals at events in Dallas. As one of the largest event caterers in the Dallas area, we order and prepare hundreds of thousands of pounds of food every year – we owe it to our clients and our community to ensure that our operation is environmentally-friendly and sustainable.

Why are we so happy about Spring/Summer harvest at the Reeves Family Farm?

Eating local is good for us all. “Local” can mean that you get your food from farms that are close by you, but it could also mean going to the farmer’s market and buying from the farmer you can chat with every Saturday morning, or growing your own food in your backyard.

As people are becoming more aware of the food/health connection, more are asking questions about where their food comes from. Highly processed foods may be convenient, but the health benefits can’t compare to fresh food. Likewise, many ask if their produce is local, but also if chemicals are used while it’s growing or after it is harvested. Knowing these things empowers you to make the best choices to eat healthy for a long and vibrant life. Buying from your local farmer is the best option to ensure your food is fresh, organic and at its maximum nutrient level.

Health Benefits to Buying Locally Grown Food

It’s best for food to ripen in its own time. This allows the fruit or vegetable to accumulate all the nutrients possible. Sometimes at the grocery store, you might see a tiny sticker on your fruit or vegetable indicating it was grown in a far-flung location. This little fruit or vegetable may have traveled a thousand miles or more just to get to your supermarket. Before it started its journey, it may not have been completely ripe when it was picked and therefore may have lost many nutrients during the long trek to you. A study in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry found that healthy nutrients in blackberries more than quadrupled as they became ripe. Take advantage of the enhanced nutrients by eating local produce.

It’s also best to eat food grown “in season” for optimum nutrition. There’s a reason plants grow when they do because that is the time nature allows it to grow to its potential. One study by Montclair State University found that broccoli grown out-of-season had just half the vitamin C as broccoli is grown in season. For the most nutrients and the most flavorful taste, in season fruit and vegetables are superior.

Environmental Benefits to Buying Locally Grown Food

You may have heard the word ‘sustainability’ used to describe farms. This term includes using the land for a common good and using farming practices that will enhance the land. Sustainability is about maintaining a farm long-term, with wise agricultural insight that keeps it producing year after year. Above all, sustainable farmers know how to plan and plant their crops in a way that refreshes the soil and ensures that the land will continue to be useful for crops. Let’s face it, everyone needs farms and farmers. No one wins if farms are divided up into homesteads or business areas. And of course, we all need the produce to keep us healthy.

Purchasing locally reduces food miles (the distance that food has traveled – from the place it was produced to where it will be sold). Reducing the food miles accumulated during transportations will lessen the number of fossil fuels consumed, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Eat organic every day! Fruit and vegetables produced without chemicals mean the produce is organic. A farmer must pay a fee to use the term Certified Organic so many smaller farmers don’t use the term even if they are using tried-and-true organic farming practices.

G Texas Catering is proud to use organic produce from local farms. Our local farmers are artists at working with nature and creating produce that we are proud to serve to you.
