I think if you've traveled much, what you'll find Colorado is most famous for is Rocky Ford Cantaloupes, Olathe Sweet Corn, and maybe the best lamb in the world. Green chile wouldn't even make the top 50 list.What culinary marvels do you think Colorado should be known for? Rocky Mountain oysters? The chains that got their start here, including Smashburger and Chipotle? The cheeseburger, which was allegedly invented here? The Mexican hamburger, which was definitely invented here? Craft beer?
