505 Southwestern® (505SW™) proudly unveils a new line of tomato-based salsas with Southwestern flare that pays homage to the company’s New Mexican heritage: Thick ‘N Chunky, Salsa Casera and Salsa Picante. True to the company’s commitment to the Hatch Valley, each salsa features 505SW™’s signature hatch green chiles and, unlike many other mainstream salsa brands, 505SW™’s salsas use only fresh, natural ingredients. The new salsas, like the rest of 505SW™’s offerings, have no artificial preservatives, flavors, or thickeners, nor any chemical stabilizers. The salsas are 100% made in New Mexico.
“As the No. 1 premium green chile brand in the country, 505SW™ was ready to expand into the massively successful tomato-based salsa category,” said Rob Holland, Executive Chairman of 505 Southwestern. “We recognized many popular brands often use sugars, dyes and artificial flavors in their recipes, so we created salsas that only use the freshest, highest quality ingredients. And at 505SW™we believe that everything is better with green chile—which is precisely why we incorporated green chiles straight from the Hatch Valley into each of these distinctly different red salsas.”
- The Thick ‘N Chunky salsa is a Southwestern take on the classic with hand-picked serranos and jalapenos and just the right amount of Hatch Valley roasted green chile. The salsa has fresh diced tomatoes and a fresh-from-the-garden flavor.
- The Salsa Casera is an authentic Mexican salsa made from a traditional homemade Mexican recipe with a Southwest twist that includes serrano peppers blended with a taste of Hatch Valley roasted green chile. Casera means “homemade” and this bright, authentic, flavorful salsa tastes like it came straight from your kitchen.
- The Salsa Picante is a Texas Original with a touch of Southwestern flavor. This Picante blends hand-picked jalapeno peppers and Hatch Valley green chile with a variety of spices creating an unforgettable flavor.
The new product line is being rolled out now in Albertsons and Safeway stores in the Intermountain Region with wider distribution slated for 2021.
