Colorado has a unique style of green chile -- thick, gravy-like. But there are endless variations on that style, and every one has its fans. Bonnie Brae Tavern might seem an unlikely place to find a great green chile -- but thinking about it covering another Colorado creation -- the slopper, here known as the Pueblo Burger -- is enough to make a local boy homesick...
Being here in the Emirates (UAE), I just plain miss good Tex-Mex style green chile -- so don't take any of it, Bonnie Brae Tavern or not, for granted. Hell, give me some from Chubby's, Las Delicias, Santiago's, Pancho's, El Azteca (Rocky Ford), Mexico City (La Junta). Even Casa Bonita will suffice right now these days...
