Based on traditional Baca family recipes, these all natural 12 oz. stews are made with free range chicken that is hormone-free and antibiotic-free. The Posole Stew is made with organic corn, has no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, 0 grams trans fat, and one package provides 140 % RDA of Vitamin A.  The Green Chile Chicken Stew has no artificial ingredients, 0 grams trans fat, and is an excellent source of Vitamin C (110% RDA for the package.)  

These stews are ready to heat and serve. They are microwaveable in their packages, perfect to take along for lunch, yet hearty enough for dinner.  

They can be found in the freezer section at most grocery stores in New Mexico including Whole Foods, La Montanita, Smiths, Albertsons, John Brooks, and Lowe's, retailing between $4.29 and $4.99.

"In our family and in families across New Mexico, posole and green chile stew are staple meals," said Jacqueline Baca, president of Bueno Foods. "Green chile stew was our chicken soup, perfect when we were under the weather, nutritious and wholesome all year long.  And posole was as much a part of the traditional Christmas festivities as Santa Claus!" she added.  "We wanted to provide an authentic, healthy, and convenient way for people to enjoy both dishes all year long."

Bueno Foods was incorporated in 1951 by a long-time New Mexican family and is now run by second generation Bacas. The company pioneered the first commercially available flame roasted frozen green chile in the United States and is known for its authentic New Mexican food products including Autumn Roast® green chile and Grandma's® tortillas.
