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!!

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!

    We love Chilli’s. I usually end up ordering the same thing although I wish I was the type that ordered something new every time. Maybe if I win I will try too.

    I ALWAYS try something new. Most of the time it works out, but there have been a few times I ended up wishing I had gone with something I had already “proven”.

    Angela says:

    Love Chili’s! At Chili’s we tend to order our favorites… depends
    on the restaurant whether we try new things!

    Kylee says:

    I’m usually going for the same kind of items when we dine out – usually things I don’t cook at home!

    Sarah says:

    I usually order something new unless there’s something I really like.

    Necia Munro says:

    Once I find something that I like, I tend to keep ordering it, although if the restraunt is close, I am more adventurous. When I am visiting family, I have to have my favorites, or I am likely disappointed when I leave.

    Jon says:

    I’m pretty adventurous. I like to try new places and new things. But sometimes you just gotta stick with what works.

  13. 213

    My husband always ventures out unlike me and 99% of the time what he gets is horrible. I am taking away his decision making from now on. Pick me, I love Chilis!

    I try to sometimes order something new, and then I have the “Oh, I should have gotten the usual”

    I love Chili’s. I am both. I ALWAYS get the Chicken Enchilada Soup. But I do try new things with my soup. Yum. I want some now.

    Davese Galla-Rini says:

    Little of both. Some resturants I order the exact same thing but then somtimes I venture out !!

    Michele K says:

    We usually order the same things. Dont even look at the menu. Then we would have to make a decision between what we know we love….and….ooooh that looks good!

  21. 221
    Marie says:

    I’m definitely a tried and true orderer. I wouldn’t want to ruin the experience with getting bad food:)

  22. 222

    I am usually daring and order something different, my husband usually orders the same thing.

    Buttercup says:

    My husband and I are pretty adventurous when we eat out – we always try out different things. But we do have our favourites from certain restaurants. Right now we when we go out we try the low calorie things on the menu to see if restaurants can make tasty things for those of us who are trying to be more health conscience.

    Carrie says:

    If I find something that I LOVE I stick with it. Otherwise, I try different things on a menu.

  38. 238

    It totally depends. At chain type restaurants, I generally get the same thing if I know I like it. At other restuarants, I try to get what ever the chef is featuring and have had some wonderful dishes I might not otherwise tried.

    Rebecca says:

    I’m boring. I order the same menu item usually.

    Megan says:

    Sometimes, I’ll try new things, or I’ll try something different until I find something I love. Once I find something I love, I usually stick with it.

  42. 242

    Oh jeez! I need to win this! Personally I’m a “new” menu kinda girl, but because my boyfriend loves Chili’s so much we go often, I have some favorites on their lower calorie menu I always order.
