Pueblo Representative Daneya Esgar says, "This is a proud day for all of Colorado, not just for Pueblo and the Lower Arkansas Valley, where the Pueblo chiles are grown." "Our local growers deserve recognition of their outstanding chiles. I'm just sorry they were out planting today and couldn't come to the signing." 

The plate is part of a statewide branding campaign to support the 16 family farms that make up the Pueblo Chile Growers Association.
