What can be considered the taste of Colorado?

There's a good reason why everyone gathers in the kitchen when they come over to visit. The kitchen is not only where the food is, but it's also where the love is. Food is a love language and just like languages, it's spoken different everywhere you go.

In other words, what you find in Los Angeles may not be what you find in New York. What you dine on in Japan won't be what you dine on in Italy. That's the beauty of food, it's different everywhere you go.

Whenever I travel, I try to get out of my comfort zone and eat what the locals eat. For instance, when my husband and I went to Barcelona, we ate a lot of paella and drank Cava. Yum! Doing this creates a unique experience, but also adds a layer to the memory bank when it comes to reminiscing on the trip.

So what kind of food language are we speaking in Colorado?

According to the Daily Meal, we don't have any official foods in Colorado. Sorry for the trick question earlier. Maybe we can flip the script a little bit and ask a different question.

What should Colorado's official state foods be?

Daily Meal says that we are one of the top 10 cattle-producing states in the nation. We know how to grow 'em and we know how to grill 'em. As a steak lover myself, I don't think this is a bad option for Colorado.

Taste of Home says that many of the sheep that are raised in America actually come from Colorado as well. It sounds to me like we have a lot of the nation depending on us for meat. Although, I've never actually eaten lamb, I've heard it's quite tasty.

Green Peppers

Whether it's hatch green chilies or poblano peppers, I think it's safe to say that we like things spicy in Colorado. Making one of these variations our state pepper would be... for lack of a better term... hot.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
