Founded in 1928 in New Iberia, Louisiana, Bruce Foods had been manufacturing original Cajun and Tex Mex food products for more than eighty years - long before these spicy cuisines were introduced to the rest of the world. Our Mexican food plant in El Paso, Texas was founded in 1931 and pioneered the first canned Mexican foods. One hundred and one years ago John Walker of the Walker Chili Company developed Mexene
Chili Powder in a small South Texas town. The flavor was designed to duplicate the popular taste of chili made by cowboys and loved by everyone in the area. As the word spread and its reputation grew from winning chili recipe contests, Mexene's
distribution and brand awareness grew along with it. Today, Mexene
is manufactured in El Paso, Texas and distributed by Bruce Foods. The original recipe and manufacturing process remain the same as they were in 1906. Mexene
Chili Powder is called "The Chili Champions' Choice" and is endorsed by CASI, The Chili Appreciation Society International. Mexene has been used in many of the winning recipes from the World Championship Chili Cookoff in Terlingua, Texas.
