Colorado Eats: Green Chiles

|

It wouldn’t be autumn in Colorado without the intoxicating smell of roasting chiles. Perfect for tossing with scrambled eggs, making stew, or topping a cheeseburger, green chiles are readily available along Federal Boulevard, at farmers’ markets, and even at Whole Foods.

Chances are good that your fridge or freezer is already stocked for the season, but according to the New York Times, green chiles are still relatively unknown in New York City. Here in Colorado, the goods are such a part of our culinary world that last week The Denver Post dedicated its lead food story to the chiles, complete with recipes and trivia.
