Routt County CSU Extension: Time for Colorado green chilies 13.9.2015 Steamboat Pilot
We talk about seasons in Steamboat — ski season, mud season and one of my favorites, green chile season. As our seasons shift and nighttime temperatures cool, green chilies heat up local menus and roadside stands. Green chilies are a hot commodity in Colorado, because they contribute unrivaled character to cuisines, making them a mountain town mainstay this time of year. With history as rich as their flavor, green chilies have been a Colorado cooking classic for decades. Hatch green chilies — the head honcho of green chilies, with a heritage rooted in New Mexico — are famous in Colorado for blanketing burgers, enrobing enchiladas and spicing-up salsas. However, Colorado’s Pueblo green chile is a culinary competitor. Southeastern Colorado’s high elevation, hot summers and cold nights make the Pueblo green chile meatier than others and ideal for roasting. The combination of heat and sweet make chilies a worthy centerpiece in dishes such as chile verde (green chile stew) and add zing to sauces, corn bread ...

John Hickenlooper in a statement. Chris Colclasure, planning and policy program manager for Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Air Pollution Control Division, said he doesn’t think oil and gas developers in the state have much to adapt to under the federal regulations. “It’s certainly easier for the state to implement, because we’ve got some experience,” he said. Colorado has stricter ...
