Reader: Your Green Chile List Is a Bunch of Yuppie Bullshit

Last week we dished up our 2015 edition of Denver's top ten green chiles — and the comments have been coming fast and furious. Mostly furious. Says Sean:
Any Colorado list (much less Denver) of top green chiles is not a list without Chubby's. For shame.
Adds Elissa:
Sacrilege that Jack-n-Grill isn't on this list.
Says Rogers:
This is bullshit. Santiago's green chile blows and Las Delicias has the best green chili in the country
And then there's this from Joseph:
Bullshit. Bunch of yuppy chile.
Read our list here. Do you think Chubby's deserves a place on it? Jack-n-Grill? Las Delicias? What's your favorite green chile in Denver?
