For homegrown emerald-colored substances, there's none more famous or well-liked in Mile High than
those plants you're legally growing in your closet green chili. In fact, it's SO well liked (by us), we put together the tastiest green chili crawl ever created, highlighting both institutions like Jack-n-Grill and newcomers like Corner House.
