Smother love: It's easy being green in Denver in September, when the smell of roasting chiles overrides the odor of exhaust along Federal Boulevard, and the green chile at your favorite Mexican joint carries the heat of the new harvest.
For the next several weeks, Cafe Society will feature some of our favorite green chiles. We started last week with Phil's Place, and continued through El Tejado, La Fiesta and a still-unidentified spot where green chile makes a very occasional, but delicious, appearance.
You wouldn't expect to find green chile on the menu at this roadhouse-turned-neighborhood joint, but not only is it right there alongside the pizzas and burgers, it's surprisingly flavorful...and very, very hot.
