Albuquerque, New Mexico-based 505 Southwestern has introduced its new line of queso with Hatch Valley Green Chile.
“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, New Mexico. Now we are excited to bring this level of quality to our queso,” said Sam Carson, president of 505 Southwestern.
“Why settle for less? You deserve 505 Southwestern Queso, because it’s the only national brand made with authentic Hatch Valley Green Chile. 505 Southwestern Queso is an amazing cheese sauce and it’s evident in the flavor, texture and quality of the product.”
Additional ingredients in the queso include Monterey Jack cheese, jalapeños and tomatoes. The new line of queso is sold in 12-ounce glass jars and will be available throughout the Western U.S. and select markets nationwide in a variety of grocers including Walmart, Safeway, Albertsons, Bashas’ and Kroger.
505 Southwestern started in 1997 when Albuquerque resident Roy Solomon began bottling and selling his recipes for green chile sauce and salsa. Honoring his local area code to develop the brand, Solomon’s “magic ingredient” was fire-roasted, Hatch Valley green chiles. With beginnings as a local favorite, the brand has grown to become a nationally distributed jarred green chile sauce brand. 505 Southwestern is sold in every U.S. state and internationally.
505 Southwestern’s parent company, Flagship Food Group, operates multiple facilities in New Mexico and created the 505 Southwestern – New Mexico True Scholars program in 2017 to support local high school students interested in studying agriculture in college.
