Green Chile Apple/Banana Bread

Try this yummy creation with a dash of New Mexico Green Chile for some added zip—also, the natural sweetness from the bananas and the apple sauce allow you to use 50% less sugar than normal!

4 ripe bananas (the riper the better)
1/2 cup of sugar
¾ cup of applesauce
2 eggs
2 cups of bread flour
½ teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of Hatch Green Chile Powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9” x 5” loaf pan.
In a large bowl, slice the bananas and use a large fork or electric mixer to mash.
Add the sugar and blend.
Let mixture stand for 15 minutes.
Add applesauce, eggs, and green chile and mix well.
Blend in the remaining ingredients.
Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let stand again for 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
