The good folks at Chili’s have offered to give 1 Picky Palate Reader a $50 Gift Card to dine at one of their restaurants!!  They also sent  my family so we could share our dining experience of Chili’s new menu items with all of you.  Here’s how our delicious night of eating went down……….

We started with a cup of their new Chicken Green Chili Soup.  Let me just say, my husband and I LOVED this,  so much I totally re-created it!!  See my recipe HERE.

I know, so naughty, but then we tried their new Loaded Beef Nachos.  Um….Incredible 🙂

The boys ordered off of the kids menu, but picked at our food too 🙂

For our main course, we shared the new Carribean Salad, Mini Chicken and Beef Tacos and the Steakhouse Sandwich.  We really enjoyed all of these plates, especially the Steakhouse Sandwich.  The horseradish dipping sauce was AWESOME!

It wouldn’t have been appropriate had we not ordered dessert, so we ordered their new Brownie Sunday, which was pretty much devoured 🙂  Thanks for a great dining experience Chili’s!!

Enter to Win the $50 Chili’s Gift Card:

1.  Leave a comment and tell us…..“Do you order the same type of thing when dining out or are you daring and try new things off of the menu?” I’m a “new menu item” kind of girl, but my hubby typically orders the same things!!  So, let’s hear it!

    Depends on my mood – sometimes I go for the “tried and true” and other times I go for something totally new and different.

    Holly says:

    We both order the same thing every time. It might be boring, but it’s very convenient. 🙂

    I like to try new things, only If the restaurant is a good one.

    I try to be adventurous and order something that is the nightly special or something I wouldn’t make at home. Although I find my self sometimes with a burger, and that is neither adventurous or undomesticated.

    Kelli says:

    I tend to stick to the same genera but will try different things!

    I’m a new item kind of gal…unless the dish is SOOOO good that I can’t bear to try something else. Like Chile’s Quesadilla Explosion salad. So, So, So good!

    Beckey says:

    I always order the same thing at almost every restaurant. I don’t dare try new things especially if they are expensive because if I don’t like it…I won’t finish it…then that’s a lot of money wasted! LOL My hubby pretty much does the same thing. We’re lame I guess!

    I’m usually a “same thing” kind of gal, but at Chili’s, there’s too many good things to get into a rut like that. 😉

    Heather G says:

    If I’m buying..same thing..if someone else is buying..I try something I’ve never had. 🙂 That way I don’t feel like I’ve wasted MY money if I don’t like it!

    Leigh says:

    YUM!! Carribean Salad and the Steakhouse Sandwich- BOTH lookk so good!!

  28. 78
    Tiffany says:

    There are only a couple places I order the same thing but I typically am adventurous. My husband on the other hand, has a favorite everywhere and that is all he gets.

    I’m sorta in between. I like to try new things but have gotten way too many items that I just don’t like and have been dissappointed. So I don’t get TOO adventurous.
