Gene England developed the method of taking ripe mild chili pods, cooking then grinding them into a rich mild paste ready for many Mexican recipes. It is a favorite of Foodservice users and restaurants alike. Sold in 6/#10 cases available from our facility, or sold by many Foodservice distributors such as US Food, Sysco, Shamrock and smaller distributors around Arizona.

For our 75th anniversary we have partnered with growers in the Messilla Valley to process our original chili powder formula using Hatch New Mexico Chilies. Available in 25 pound and 50 pound boxes.
