Chili Verde: Where to Eat this Weekend

March 4th, 2011 Posted by Denver, restaurants No Comment yet

Chili Verde sits on a cozy corner on Tejon Street. Owners Hanzel and Eder Yáñez-Motare are brothers from Puebla, Mexico.  Their parents have passed down many of the recipes on the menu.  Chili Verde strives to change the way Mexican food is served, introducing foods that are both sweet and savory and that are not seen on most Mexican menus. A favorite are the Chili Rellenos stuffed with beef, raisins, and fruit, and topped with pomegranate.  More famous are the Poblano Crepes, moist shredded chicken wrapped in a fluffy crepe, topped with a light cream sauce and green peppers. It is a unique item that Westword has awarded Best Crepes and that has received many other honorable mentions.  The Tapache Marg made with fermented pineapple and Patron is a fun change from the typical margarita. Beat the Restaurant Week crowds, reservations, and pretension. Hanzel and Eder are sure to treat you like family when you arrive.
