First place chili winner Sally Wagner “dished”on the evolution of her recipe (posted left): “After moving to Denver, a neighbor of mine dropped off a bag full of roasted hatch green chilies that you can get in the fall from several roadside roasters. Not having a clue of what to do with them, I delved into a whole new world of Mexican cooking. This recipe slowly evolved over years of distilling ideas from many of my culinary friends.” Please enjoy.
