Ol' Gringo Chile Company is located in Las Cruces, NM-near the heart of famous New Mexico chile country. In August and September of every year you can smell fresh chile roasting outside grocery stores and in back yards. As far as the eye can see, fields of green chile are turning red.
Lots of people wonder why the company is called Ol' Gringo when it was founded and is proudly operated by a mother and daughter who grew up here.
The company is named after the family patriarch, Ed Berridge, the Ol' Gringo, who originally made the red sauce in a big kettle out in the yard on the family farm in Garfield, NM many years ago. Buckets of big, red chile pods went into a colander and the pot, making a pureed sauce. By the end of the day, there were 40 or 50 family gathered around. No one left empty-handed. By the gallon, they took the sauce home.
Today, Ol' Gringo Chile Company uses the same care with its chile sauces and salsa.
The red is made from dehydrated red chile and has that authentic New Mexico flavor. Each jar of green sauce is packed with green chile. You can see it in the jar.
And, chile is great for you! It is low fat, has no cholesterol, and is high in Vitamin C. If you need a health reason, there are three of them for you.
