Last week we stopped by Chili’s for dinner.
Have you been to Chili’s lately?
Lazy Dad and I like their 2 for $20 deal where you get an appetizer to share and two full-sized entree’s.
But the reason we stopped by, was to try out their newest additions to the 2 for $20 dinner. It’s their Pick-A-Pepper items showcasing that not all chile peppers are just spicy. From sweet to heat, these new line of dishes display the versatility and multiple flavors of chiles.
New offerings on the 2 for $20 dinner include:
· Smoky Chipotle Chicken Fajitas – Sizzling grilled chicken, sautéed onions and bell peppers kicked-up with chipotle pesto sauce and melted Monterey Jack cheese. Topped with crispy onion strings.
· Santa Cruz Steak – 100% USDA Choice 6 oz. sirloin topped with seasoned butter and a side of tangy verde sauce. Served over fire-roasted corn salsa with jalapeño-cheddar mashed potatoes.
· Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Chicken – Grilled chicken breast served over a zesty roasted red pepper cream sauce. Topped with melted pepper Jack cheese and served with rice and steamed broccoli.
I ordered the Santa Cruz Steak…
the corn was absolutely delicious! And the verde sauce for the steak was sweet with just a little tiny bit of spice to it.
Oh, and SURPRISE! The potatoes? They have jalapeno peppers in them!
Which, I’m not a jalapeno fan, but I was totally surprised that I liked them in the potatoes!
Seriously, give it a try even if you don’t do jalapenos. The potatoes took the heat off of them while still offering their jalapeno flavor. Very nice!
While I was working on my meal, Lazy Dad threw down the new Smoky Chipotle Chicken Fajitas…
The crispy onion straw thingys on top were super yummy (even my 8 year old daughter loved them) and the chicken was extremely delicious!
As for the rest of Chili’s menu? They’re busy putting a ‘pepper guide’ in each new menu to educate their guests on the range of pepper flavors Chili’s can offer. While outlining the heat level and specific pepper flavors, they’re offering an easy-to-follow guide along with the new menu descriptions.
Perfect for a family like ours that has spicy lovers and non-lovers alike! Now you can know exactly what you’re getting up front!
