New Mexico Gold was established in Socorro, NM by Ernest and Theresa McBride. Ernest has always been a creative entrepreneur and values his community and locally grown produce. Together, Ernest and Theresa created a unique product, a smooth and addicting olive oil infused with authentic New Mexico red and green chiles and garlic. New Mexicans are known for putting chile on everything to enhance the flavor. After many variations and recipes, the couple finally came up with the perfect combination of olive oil, chile, and garlic. Oro Rojo is infused with red chile and garlic, while the Oro Verde is infused with green chile and garlic. Ernest and Theresa started out giving samples of oil to friends and co-workers. One co-worker called it “gold.” That was the beginning of New Mexico Gold. ? The chile-infused oil soon became very popular with the local community, especially during the holidays. After getting off to a great start, the chile oil business had to be put on hold for personal reasons. Theresa was diagnosed with ALS in 2010 and passed away the following year. After struggling for many years, Ernest and his three children are focusing on making his and Theresa’s dream a reality.?
