If You Grew Up In Colorado, You Definitely Love These 8 Classic Dishes
Homemade green chile. Palisade peaches. Deep fried cow you-know-whats… if you know what I’m talking about with these three dishes, you are obviously a Coloradan and are guaranteed to know all eight of these classic Colorado foods:
1. Since we already mentioned it, let us expand a bit on homemade green chile.
Quite possibly the most famous of Colorado foods is a spicy and perfectly seasoned green chile recipe! If you are a native who LOVES the chile, do yourself a favor and take our
green chile road trip
so that you can decide who has the best recipe in the state.
2. Onto those tasty Palisade peaches...
Mmm, sweet and juicy Palisade peaches... excuse me a moment while I go and drool over this famous summertime treat!
3. And those cow... err.. "delicacies."
No bull: Coloradans use EVERY part of the cow and guess what? They taste great dipped in a tangy cocktail sauce.
4. Rocky Ford Melons
Did you know that Rocky Ford, Colorado is the melon capital of the world? If you didn’t, you are missing out on some of the freshest and most delicious melon you will ever taste.
5. Smothered burritos
Not sure what to serve with your green chile? If you're tired of eating chile in soup form, you are going to love pouring it atop a filling burrito!
6. Beau Jo’s Pizza
Move over, Chicago and New York - Colorado-style Mountain Pies are waaaaaaaaaay better than any (and every) other pizza out there! What makes it so great? We'll give you a hint: it has to do with the super thick crust and the customary bottle of honey on every table. If your mouth isn't already watering, it will be after you check out our recent feature of Beau Jo's

In case you missed it, Colorado’s got game! No, not *that* kind of game (though let’s be honest, we got that, too) - we're talking about buffalo, bison, elk, and deer!
While it isn’t
technically a dish, we couldn’t have an iconic Colorado foods article without mentioning our state's most iconic drink: beer. Whether you crave domestic or craft, dark or light, it’s made here and it’s the best.
