Chile Challenge

As a Salt Lake City native now living in Colorado, I must call your attention to the food writers at Westword, Denver’s alternative weekly newspaper. They are under the continued delusion that Denver created the dish they call green chile, but is ubiquitous in Utah as chile verde, and can often be found throughout the Intermountain West.

I’ve been able to look the other way when Coloradans assume the Rocky Mountains exist only here, but I refuse to let them get away with insulting my favorite dish like this. Making matters worse is the fact that chile verde in Denver is generally lousy, usually heavily thickened with flour and only having miniscule flecks of tough pork.

If I could afford it, I would fly their staff to Salt Lake City for a trip to the Red Iguana, but barring that, I was hoping you could serve up an alt-weekly smackdown.
