Welcome to Bueno Foods

     Bueno Foods (El Encanto, Inc.) is a successful family-owned New Mexican food company located in Albuquerque, New Mexico since 1951.  We have grown from a small family-owned grocery store into the Southwest’s premier producer of New Mexican and Mexican style foods, still owned and operated by the Baca family.

     We manufacture, prepare, and distribute more than 150 authentic, gourmet-quality food products to restaurant and retail customers throughout the United States.  Products include New Mexico flame roasted fresh frozen green chile, red chile, tortillas, salsas, and a line of ready-to-serve prepared products such as tamales and enchiladas.  We also specialize in a line of natural and organic products under our BUENATURAL label, including organic non GMO tortillas and vegetarian tamales.

     As we celebrate our 63rd anniversary this year, we welcome you to our Bueno Family! We hope you enjoy!


1st Company to be

NM Chile Certified TM

Bueno Foods is the first company to become NM Chile Certified! This means that 100% of our green chile and GC sauces are grown in NM and this fact is independently audited and certified by the New Mexico Chile Association. Ask your retailer or your favorite restaurant if they offer Certified Chile, guaranteed to be grown in New Mexico. If it's not Certified, it may not be from NM.

Keep New Mexico Green

Green Chile

Cook Green Chile To 165°

All NRTE (non-ready-to-eat) frozen green chile peppers and red chile purees (in retail containers and food service bulk packs) are uncooked, like many frozen vegetables. Do not consume uncooked chile. Cook to 165° F before eating. And enjoy the N.M. tradition!!
