Guess where I'm eating a "prego" burrito with hot green chile?

In most cases, anything with the name "prego" in its title conjures up weird food aversions and compulsions of fourteen years ago, when I was, in fact, "prego" with a fat fetus who's now a skinny teenager that insists on wearing shorts, even when there's a foot of the snow on the ground. But I digress. This is a burrito that lives up to its name, "prego" with a chile relleno and enough shredded pork to fill a pig pen, and while that burrito is good -- very good -- it's the mouth-numbing green chile, studded with more pork, that's the star.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

No clue - but, can't wait to find out - looks awesome!!  Not enough green chile that is actually green in Denver.

@Denver Dave Dave -- it's from Boone's. Had never been there before yesterday, but I'm glad I went. Good beer list, too. And they have a slopper...if you're into that.

@Denver Dave Green chili that is that shade of green is an Americanized version.  It's like comparing Taco Bell to street tacos.

@Denver Dave I was just about to say the same thing  - the green chile is actually green and not orange or tan. Looks great! I also don't know where it is (although I wouldn't give it away if I did). Hoping someone will get it right.

@BackOffImStarving @Denver Dave You clearly don't have a clue what you are talking about.  First of all, it is "chile" not "chili" (chili is whatever that stuff is they make in Texas).  I grew up in New Mexico which is justly famous for green chile and trust me - this is the color it should be - not the orange gravy you find around Denver.

@Denver Dave @BackOffImStarving Although some of that orange-ish gravy is pretty tasty too. Just depends on what you cut your teeth on. But green is certainly an acceptable, if not preferred, color for green chile. 

The word "Americanized" is virtually meaningless since there are regional variations both north and south of the border.
