Move over, Olathe and Palisade. Step aside, Rocky Ford. It's time for Pueblo's green chili harvest to be praised. Its green chilies attract fans from all over, especially at the annual Chile & Frijoles Festival, happening Friday to Sunday.

"The Pueblo chili is becoming more recognized in our state," said Richard Warner, co-owner of Bingo Burger. "We know Hatch (New Mexico chilies) has been around a lot longer, but people are coming to understand that the Pueblo chili has so much more flavor, and they appreciate supporting the local farmer."

This fact was confirmed at last month's Denver Burger Battle, where Warner's burger placed fourth.

Nothing says fall quite like the warming aromas of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cardamom.

Latte lovers know autumn has arrived when Starbucks returns its signature Pumpkin Spice Latte to the menu.

But for a fraction of the cost of one Pumpkin Spice Latte, you can buy a box of pumpkin spice single-serve coffee pods at Sprouts Farmers Market. These are compatible with most Keurig and single-cup brewing systems. And you can feel extra smug sipping the spicy beverage knowing it's made with Fair Trade Certified coffee.

But fall favorites go beyond coffee. Dessert lovers recognize the season by the return of canned pumpkin pulp to the shelves. Pancake lovers grab Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix.

Rick Velliquette is a first-time restaurant owner but is no stranger to the restaurant business. He plans to open The Bistro on 2nd, 65 Second St., Monument, on Monday. The building was formerly Wisdom Tea House. Velliquette is a well-known front of the house staff that greeted and served customers since 1998 off and on. He spent several of those years at Joseph's Fine Dining on 8th Street. He managed Little Nepal Restaurant & Bar on Flintridge Drive for a couple of years before going to The Pepper Tree Restaurant for two and a half years. During his time at these jobs, he won "best waiter" three years in a row in The Gazette's Best Of contest.

"I've been looking for the right spot for my restaurant five years," he said. "Nothing

<![CDATA[On Food: Colorado Springs cook takes first place in recipe contest]]> http://gazette.com/on-food-colorado-springs-cook-takes-first-place-in-recipe-contest/article/1585373?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/on-food-colorado-springs-cook-takes-first-place-in-recipe-contest/article/1585373?custom_click=rss

And the winner is: Connie Higgins.

Higgins took first in The Gazette's Fall Harvest Recipe Contest. Yours truly had the honor of sorting through the dozens of recipes submitted by readers. I was impressed by Higgins' almond crusted zucchini bites with harissa dip for several reasons. First, it used the tasty exotic Middle Eastern spice harissa in the dip. Harissa is a Tunisian sauce made with hot chilies, garlic, cumin, coriander, caraway and olive oil. Another thing the recipe had going for it was that it was a clever way to use up the ever abundant zucchini this time of year. Plus it will appeal to those who follow vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free diets.
