Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8 servings
- 5 egg yolks
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 ounces cream cheese , room temperature
- 3 tablespoons key lime juice
- 1 tablespoon lime zest
- 1/4 cup roasted Hatch Chiles , chopped - divided use
Beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemon colored.
Heat the milk, cream, and cream cheese to a simmer, whisking until smooth.
With the mixer running slowly add the hot milk mixture to the eggs.
Beat until well blended.
Pour the milk and egg mixture back into the pan and simmer until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat.
Blend 2 tablespoons of the hatch chiles to a paste.
Whisk into the milk mixture with the lime juice and lime zest.
Refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
Add the cold mixture to your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Add the remaining chopped Hatch Chiles to the mixture when it's solid but still soft - about halfway through.
Store, tightly covered in the freezer.
