Nothing like good food to connect people together, and Chili's has been doing just that since it opened its very first branch in the country back in 1996. And there's no better description that perfectly captures that unique experience at Chili's than its new tagline, "More Life Happens Here."
And there's no better place to chill with friends and family with comforting Southwestern dishes than Chili's. Chili's introduces cool new dishes with its unique Southwestern style flavors to be savored and shared with family and friends, and "more life" definitely "happens here" at Chili's.
Start with Chili's new Sparkling Soda (P 125), a cool blend of strawberry puree and soda with refreshing sweet and tart notes to get you in the groove.
Pair your refreshing Sparkling Soda with some signature nachos with fresh salsa or cheese dip, thin and crisp, and a perfect starter to any meal at Chili's. Then, the new dishes were served...
Fried Quesadilla Bites (P 375), hearty flour tortillas filled with Southwest chicken and cheese covered in batter and deep-fried, sprinkled with chopped cilantro with a side of chipotle sour cream. the familiar quesadillas is transformed into crunchy nibblers, with each bite releasing rich and creamy cheese. The smooth chipotle sour cream completes the Southwestern flavors in this new appetizer. Great with the new Sparkling Sodas, or some margaritas.
Parmesan Tilapia (P 425), soft and delicate fillet of tilapia crusted with parmesan and Monterey Jack cheese, drizzled with chili butter and topped with green onions, with a choice of two sides (choose from homestyle fries, corn on the cob, cilantro rice, fresh vegetables, steamed white rice, mashed potatoes, and broccoli spears). The delicate flavor of the tilapia contrasts with the crunchy layer and rich flavor of the parmesan crust, finished off with a drizzle of chili butter for that spike in flavor and comforting heat. I was pleasantly surprised with the dish, with the almost creamy texture of the white fish, unlike the usual and more common tilapia dishes. Paired with cilantro rice and fresh brocolli spears, this is one hefty meal.
Chili's Parmesan Chicken (P 395), tender and juicy fillet of chicken coated in the same rich and crunchy layer of parmesan similar to the previous tilapia dish, served with cilantro rice and brocolli spears. The familiar flavor of chicken is enhanced by the richness of the parmesan crust, with the chili butter and spring onions providing additional layers of flavors.
Craving for a serious steak? No worries. The new Bacon and Cheddar Steak (P 875), a juicy steak with Southwestern seasonings topped with cheddar cheese and crisp bacon, is the one for you. But not just any steak. Chili's pulls out all the stops with this dish, topping the succulent Southwestern seasoned steak with rich melted cheddar cheese and crisp strips of bacon.
The bold beefy flavors of the steak are are made even richer with the cheese and bacon combo, combining layers of rich flavors for a man-sized Southwestern meal. Perfectly grilled with a juicy pink center, this one's seriously good. A personal favorite.
And leave room for dessert. Cap your meal at Chili's with the new Banana Bread Pudding (P 295), a rich and moist banana bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, chopped walnuts and generously drizzled with caramel for that indulgent finish. A refreshing new drink, a light yet flavorful new appetizer, three new main dishes, and a new and indulgent dessert. Things are definitely happening at Chili's.
