A question about a recipe: Golden Quinoa Cakes with Salsa Fresca

I have a question about the recipe "Golden Quinoa Cakes with Salsa Fresca" from gingerroot. My produce guru told me Hatch chiles are only available in Aug. What's a good sub? He recommended Anaheim..

Anaheim chiles are a good substitute for Hatch chiles and they are available in most groceries for most of the year. They are typically slightly less hot than Hatch chiles.

Anaheim provided good flavor but vert little heat.

Poblanos would be fine; fuller flavor, less grassy.If you want more heat, add a bit of jalapeno.

Unfortunately the season for Hatch is pretty short although it does extend into September. I agree that Anaheim chiles are the best substitute and they are available year round.
