On an episode of the Travel Channel's "Chow Masters" that aired this week, chef Jamey Fader of the Big Red F Restaurant Group took home the top prize when the hosts of the show (chef Sammy DeMarco and Hollywood director Frank Coraci) came to Denver seeking the city's tastiest, most creative nachos. So what was the winning dish?
Fader served up a happy-hour staple from LoHi coastal Mexican spot Lola: a bed of tortilla chips topped with pork green chile, frijoles borrachos, butternut squash and chorizo queso, pico de gallo, pickled red onions, jalapeños and cotija cheese.
For his efforts Fader was dubbed the winner of the Golden Skillet, along with a $10,000 prize. The competition included Wild Eggs chef Matt Bergman's breakfast nachos, and Tocabe owner Ben Jacobs, who made fry bread nachos.
