Denver-based 505 Southwestern, a leading Hatch Valley flame-roasted green chile brand, is kicking off its 25th anniversary this year with a nationwide recipe contest.
In 1997, 505 Southwestern jarred its first batch of Flame Roasted Hatch Valley Green Chile using three ingredients.
Today, the brand offers more than 20 sauces and salsas made with the world’s best green chile. 505SW’s year-long anniversary celebration will culminate at a VIP anniversary party with company founder Roy Solomon in New Mexico during Hatch Valley’s green chile harvest season.
“For 25 years, 505 Southwestern has been committed to creating the highest quality products using the best and most simple ingredients from the Hatch Valley. Now we want to celebrate with the people who have made our success possible,” said Rob Holland, executive chairman.
“We will be demonstrating our commitment to our fans and communities with a recipe contest featuring incredible prizes, other giveaways, special offers and charitable giving all year long.”
