Matador Processors, Inc. is an independently owned frozen food manufacturer. Matador began in 1975 after the founders, Clif and Betty Wood, went to a restaurant and ordered a Chile Relleno. Their experience was not a treat for the palate and they decided that there was a need for a good Chile Relleno. Clif and Betty, being an entrepreneuring couple, set out to show the world what a Chile Relleno was meant to be. And they did. Our Chile Relleno has been shipped all over the United States and to several foreign countries. What was once a traditional Mexican item has evolved into an American made delicacy which is grown and produced with 100% American ingredients. The peppers are grown in New Mexico and shipped to Blanchard, OK, a small town outside of Oklahoma City, where a state-of-the-art production facility creates the taste tempting Chile Relleno and many other satisfying products. Matador takes great pride in taking the Chile Relleno from "field to finish".
Betty Wood is now the sole owner of the "Pepper Plant" since Clif passed away several years ago. She has continued the spirit on which Matador was founded by implementing a research and development unit and expanding the original product line to now include Hors d’oeuvres, stuffed jalapenos, and desserts. Once you try a Matador product, we trust that you will choose to add a bit of unique variety to your menus.
