Westwood Chile Fest

The southwest Denver neighborhood of Westwood convenes for this sizzling celebration. Indulge in Mexican-style cuisine such as tacos, tortas, and roasted chiles with sips ranging from agua frescas and micheladas to margaritas. And if you dare, enroll in the chile-eating competition (you’ll need to sign a waiver) and try to eat as many habaneros, jalapeños,…


The sister restaurant to nearby Tarasco's, Kahlo's offers southern Mexican dishes such as mole and enchiladas verdes. The vegan-friendly menu also lists 30 different juices and smoothies. For a reviving pick-me-up, try the Vitaminico, a blend of spinach, pineapple, and lime.
