Giveaway: Chili's Grill & Bar Offering Freshly Prepared Recipe Menu Items

Chili's Grill & Bar is now offering a bunch of new menu items focused on being freshly prepared recipe items.  We ordered the Loaded Nachos Appetizer (I had one, but that was enough for me - the nachos are very filling).  They were my husband's favorite item of the night.  He said next time he would order just the 8 for dinner and be satisfied.  I think it was the cilantro sour cream that set these above all other nachos.

I ordered the new Caribbean Salad, with dressing on the side (I am still watching my girlie figure).  

The salad featured fresh pineapple, mandarin oranges, dried cherries, green onions, cilantro and honey-lime dressing.  I chose chicken for my protein.  I love fruit in my salad.  This was one I would definitely order again.  YUM!  I will say though that I prefer my lettuce in larger chunks, but it was still yummy.
Hubby ordered their new Fried Shrimp.  It wasn't overly battered either, he hates eating more batter than shrimp.  Don't you?  It came with a different kind of spicy coleslaw and tequila lime sauce (which he enjoyed).  The other side included homestyle fries.
There were tons of choices to make with their new items.  I think the next time I go I will try their Asian Salad.  I love salmon and that is one of the choice toppings.

Our kids were with us.  Hubby had a beer (or two) and we got out of there for under $50.  Not bad at all!
