Colorado-only regional specialities?

Professor Salt | Feb 25, 2003 09:11 PM

My girfriend is a Grand Junction native who claims that the state of Colorado has no regional dishes that can be found only in that area. Somehow, I find this hard to believe. The peaches from Palisade, where she grew up, are famous. But great peaches are found elsewhere, and besides, food crops don't really count as a dish, per se.

I went to college in a small city in upstate NY, and even in the culinary vacuum of Binghamton there's a grilled kebab-type local dish called spiedies that you won't find outside of that particular part of the world. So I'm skeptical of my girl's claim that an entire state offers no local food traditions. Would anyone care to share some knowledge?
