Chili’s New Fresh Mex Menu and Giveaway

by Pennie on February 8, 2014

Chilis

Chili’s has always been known for bold, Southwest flavors and we wanted to expand our menu offerings for those looking for a fresh take on the Tex Mex cuisine. This led us to create two Fresh Mex bowls — the Chipotle Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl and the Margarita Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl – as well as Enchiladas and create-your-own Southwest Pairings starting at $8.

 

Today, Chili’s menu items like fajitas, quesadillas and tacos are consistent guest favorites, making up a significant portion of the brand’s entree mix.  Chili’s new Fresh Mex Menu leverages this position of strength and differentiation by adding a variety of classic and relevant dishes reflective of the Southwest. For instance, Chili’s is embracing consumers’ preference for enjoying a compilation of Tex-Mex ingredients in a bowl by showcasing the dish with the brand’s signature fajitas.

 

Chili’s chefs spent several months perfecting the layers of bold flavors to ensure the new Fresh Mex Bowls deliver on guests’ expectations of this popular menu trend. The result is two entrees featuring fresh, house-made ingredients blended together to bring forth the tastes of the Southwest in every bite.

 

Chili’s Fresh Mex Bowls are served with marinated grilled chicken, but can also be customized to guests’ liking with other proteins such as grilled shrimp or steak. Offered any time of the day and as part of Chili’s Lunch Combos, which comes with soup or salad for $7, Fresh Mex Bowls are available in two flavors:

chipotle-fresh-mex-bowlChipotle Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl – marinated grilled chicken, house-made corn and black bean salsa, rice and chipotle pesto layered with cheddar cheese, house-made pico de gallo, fresh field greens, chopped cilantro, crispy tortilla strips, fresh sliced avocado and a drizzle of cumin-lime sour cream.

 

margarita-fresh-mex-bowlMargarita Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl – marinated grilled chicken, house-made corn and black bean salsa, rice and black beans topped with house-made pico de gallo, fresh field greens, chopped cilantro, crispy tortilla strips, fresh sliced avocado and a drizzle of margarita sauce.

 

Nicole’s take:  We love Chilis and I love the addition of their new Fresh Mex menu! Jamie and I were able to grab the rare dinner out after spending the evening with the babies in the NICU.  I had the Margarita Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl and Jamie had the combo with a beef enchilada, tostada and crispy taco.  We loved the new items! The flavors were super fresh and clean.  We started with chips and salsa (free since we sat at the bar!) and then had our entrees.  I tasted Jamie’s items and I think next time I will get the combo to try more of the new items!
