Fresh Chile Company Founder and Owner

Randy’s Background

Let me tell you a little about me and The Fresh Chile Company. The Fresh Chile Company here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, 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. My wife Carol and I continued the tradition with our children and now 15 grandchildren. My father, Arnold McMillan, who loves food and loves to cook, came up with the idea of using fresh, crisp Hatch Red Chile instead of Dried Chile Powder or Dried Chile Pods to make his Red Enchilada Sauce. 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 of Red Chile in a jar so much that they would call and ask for cases instead of a few more jars. We heard this from so many happy friends and family that we decided it was time to share the magic with everyone. That is how and why we started The Fresh Chile Company.
