About Us

The Fresh Chile Company started from our family tradition of giving away our homemade chile sauce at Christmas. My family has been making enchilada sauce from fresh Hatch chile since I was a little boy, and Carol and I continued the tradition with our children and now 15 grandchildren.

My father, who loves food and loves to cook, came up with the idea of using fresh, crisp Hatch red chile instead of dried powder or dried chile pods to make the red enchilada sauce, and it is fantastic. Many years ago, we started bottling this beautiful fresh red chile sauce in our home kitchen to give to friends and family for Christmas and of course, for personal use throughout the year. Everyone loved their gift so much that they would call and ask for cases instead of a few jars. We heard this from so many happy friends and family after Christmas that we decided it was time to share the magic with everyone, and that is how and why we started The Fresh Chile Company. True Story!

To my knowledge, we are the only company that makes red chile sauce from fresh red chile commercially. Fresh red chile is only available from Hatch, New Mexico, for about 30 days out of every year, and that is why no other company even tries to make it this way. At the Fresh Chile Company, we work six days a week, 24 hours each day, when Hatch chile is available to process enough chile for the whole year. That is why our chile is FRESHER, REDDER, GREENER, and BETTER. We guarantee it.

You can continue the gift-giving tradition by ordering our products for your friends and family anywhere in the country. Now we offer fresh Hatch Green Chile sauces and a beautifully roasted red and green chile blend sauce that was also inspired by my father. Your friends and family will love it for their favorite Mexican dishes like posole, enchiladas, and tacos. You'll also find new favorites like smoked ham with a honey red chile glaze, turkey and noodle soup with a green chile kick, and so many other delicious recipes that my beautiful wife Carol creates for every meal.

Happy Holidays,
