505 Southwestern® Continues to Expand its Line of All Natural Sauces & Salsas into H-E-B Markets in Texas

Boise, ID – April 10, 2014 – 505 Southwestern announced today they have reached an agreement with H-E-B Markets to sell their line of All Natural 505 Southwestern sauces and salsas in 62 H-E-B Markets across the state of Texas. 505 Southwestern Sauces and Salsas are available in mild, medium and hot flavor profiles, are All Natural, Gluten Free and made with 100% green and red chile peppers grown in the Hatch Valley of New Mexico, also known as the “Chile Capital of The World.” 505 Southwestern products come in five tantalizing varieties including Flame Roasted Green Chile, Green Chile Sauce, Enchilada & Tamale Sauce and an assortment of Salsas.

“We have seen an overwhelming positive response from both retailers and consumers to the quality and superior taste of our sauces and salsas. We are extremely excited that Texans will now have the opportunity to experience our 505 Southwestern sauces and salsas for themselves,” said Ray Gadd, executive vice president of 505 Southwestern.

Rapidly growing in popularity nationwide, 505 Southwestern sauces and salsas are setting the standard in the fast growing Hispanic-influenced sauce category. 505 Southwestern uses only “Hatch Valley” pungent green chile peppers that deliver a smooth, simmering heat and a kaleidoscope of chile flavors based upon legendary recipes of generations past from the Hatch Valley in Southwestern New Mexico.

505 Southwestern sauces and salsas are available in mild, medium and hot tantalizing flavor profiles and packed in glass jars. Consumers will be able to find the following great tasting 505 Southwestern sauces and salsas at their local H-E-B Market.

505 Southwestern Roasted Green Chile (16 oz Medium) – Our Roasted Green Chiles are picked, roasted and then flash-frozen right after harvest so we can deliver that just-picked freshness in each jar. We use roasted green chile, garlic salt and just the right amount of lime juice as a preservative. This simple ingredient blend delivers great flavor and is commonly used as a condiment with tacos, enchiladas, burritos, salads, tuna, eggs, burgers and hotdogs.

505 Southwestern Green Chile Sauce (16 oz Medium & Hot) - Our Green Chile Sauce is our own special recipe and we won't divulge all our tricks. What we can say is that each kettle we produce has the right level of green chiles, tomatoes, onions, rice flour (as a gluten-free binder), lime juice, garlic powder and salt. This is one of our best-selling recipe and saves hours of preparation for anyone that loves green chile sauce. It can also be used to sauté any protein for use in burritos, tacos or quesadillas.

505 Southwestern Enchilada Sauce (16 oz Red Chile Sauce) - Once again, we don't follow the crowd. Instead of making our enchilada sauce with chile powder, we start with Hatch Valley red chile pods that deliver an intense rich flavor. We then add water, rice flour, lime juice, garlic cloves, oregano leaves and salt. Our Enchilada Red Chile Sauce is excellent when cooking with Mexican recipes including enchiladas and tamales or can be used to baste a chicken or steak. We guarantee that you can taste the difference in quality.

505 Southwestern Honey Chipotle Green Chile Salsa (16 oz Medium) - As with everything else in our line, our salsa is unique. Driven by the desire to be different, we take pride in using green chile and excluding onions from our Honey Chipotle Green Chile Salsa. Also included are tomatoes, water, honey, chipotle flakes, garlic powder, jalapeno, salt and lime juice. We then combine these ingredients with sweet honey and smoky chipotle to deliver an exceptional Southwestern flavor. Use our salsa with chips, cottage cheese, seafood, baked potatoes and more.
“Our passion for great taste, flavor and tradition is what separates our sauces and salsa products from everything else that’s in the market today. We use only the freshest, all natural ingredients to preserve that just-picked flavor and blend them together with only the best Hatch Valley green chile peppers available,” stated Gadd.
505 Southwestern Sauces can be found at such fine retailers as Whole Food Markets, Kroger, Albertson’s, Smith’s, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Costco and Bashas in the Southwest and Rocky Mountain Region.
