It all started when Colorado Governor Jared Polis took to Twitter Tuesday and called New Mexico chile "inferior." It wasn't a comment Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham was going to let slide.

The governor took to Twitter Wednesday saying "Hatch chile is, has always and will always be the greatest in the world."

Gov. Polis shot back challenging Lujan Grisham to a taste off. Only one problem, he spelled chile with an "i," only later to delete the tweet.

With New Mexicans beaming with pride over our state's chile, this subject if obviously a touchy one.

Hundreds of people have commented on this story on Facebook, most saying New Mexico chile is better. Click here to read the comments.
