Green Chili has long been one of Colorado’s signature dishes. Most green chili dishes served in Colorado restaurants are made with Pueblo green chilies. If you haven’t tried Pueblo green chilies before, you’re missing out…they’re legit. Foodies from all around the world come to Colorado for green chilies. At Sam’s No. 3, we’re proud to serve this “Colorado delicacy” and even offer it in vegetarian form. Vegetarian Green Chili is on the menu of all our Denver locations, and it’s one of our most popular items too.


3 Reasons Denver Locals Love Our Vegetarian Green Chili

Someone once told us that they consider our vegetarian green chili one of Denver’s best kept secrets. When we heard this, we were somewhat surprised, but only a little bit. After all, Denver has a huge vegetarian population, but the number of restaurants offering a vegetarian option for Colorado chili are extremely limited. Not to mention our chili is excellent. At least, we think so. But we believe that when you’re seeking an honest opinion, it’s best to ask your customers. When we asked them why they like our Vegetarian Green Chili, this is what they told us…

“It packs a punch, but it’s not too spicy.”


Our Vegetarian Green Chili is based on our family recipe. We’ve made sure that our chili incorporates just the right amount of spiciness to give it good flavor without being overwhelming. We believe that spice is important, but it shouldn’t drown out the flavors of the other ingredients.


“It’s good on its own and as a topping too.”

A bowl of green chili is a wonderful thing to have on a cold winter day. But it’s also a delicious topping for burritos, veggie burgers, skillets, and french fries.


“It’s healthy and it tastes good.”

This is a common one that we hear from non-vegetarians. If you’re looking for something healthier or lower in calorie than pork or beef chili, our Vegetarian Green Chili is a great option. It’s packed full of nutrient rich vegetables, spices, and beans that can provide you with energy and make your taste buds smile too.
