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!

2.  For 3 additional entries follow me on Twitter HERE then post the following on your twitter page….  @pickypalate is giving away a $50 Chili’s Gift Card, come check it out…   (Leave 3 separate comments for this)

    It depends. At Chili’s I have a few items I really love so I tend to order them over and over again. But some of these new menu items are really worth trying and I may be adventurous next time I’m there.

    It depends on the restaurant and my mood, but aside from a couple of restaurants where I order the same thing over and over, I like to try something new each time I dine. The chicken and lime soup looks amazing- chili’s and your version too!

    Cathy says:

    it all depends on my mood, but I tend to not drift too far from my favorites cause if I don’t like it, I don’t it eat it. 🙂 My hubby is pretty adventurous though and will order the things I may want to try but am too scared to, lol.

    amber says:

    Good question! A lot of times I’ll order the same thing if it’s at the specific restaurant and I’ve tried it before and know that I like it, but other times I like trying the new items! 😉 Thanks for the lovely giveaway!
