ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The long-simmering battle between New Mexico and Colorado over which state grows the best chile is heating up.
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham went on the offensive Wednesday after Colorado Gov. Jared Polis proclaimed on Twitter that hot peppers from Pueblo were the best and would be stocked across a four-state region by a well-known grocery store chain.
Polis went on to say stores in Lujan Grisham's state would be supplied with inferior New Mexico chile.
