Warm Up With Colorado’s Top Comfort Food Offering
This dish is so comforting, you'll want to snuggle up with it on the couch.
Comfort food is just that, comfort. It's food that tends to be decadent, but mostly it transports us to where were are most comfortable. These dishes are a taste of home and can chase away sadness or feelings of loneliness. A big comfort dish for me is chicken and dumplings. My mom would make this and I find myself craving it anytime I'm feeling like I'm in a funk or on a cold winter day.
Do you have a comfort food?
You may share that particular dish with the rest of the state. Reader's Digest created "Your Guide to the Best American Comfort Food in All 50 States" to highlight the dishes around the country that feel like a big ole hug. Some dishes are warm and savory like Idaho's "hearty potato soup", while others are cold and sweet like Florida's "key lime pie."
For Colorado it's green chile chicken chili. My mouth is watering just thinking about a big bowl of this hearty dish. It's loaded with shredded chicken, green chiles, jalapenos, and beans. Top it off with a dollop of sour cream and a mound of cheese and I'm a happy girl.
