Dare to Go Bolder? Chili's $20 Dinner for Two Menu Sizzles With New Additions


DALLAS, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Pushing the 'bold' envelope even further, Chili's® Grill & Bar is introducing several new flavors to the popular $20 Dinner for Two menu that are sure to ignite the senses. Available now for a limited time at participating locations nationwide, guests can enjoy the new Chicken Club Quesadillas, Santa Fe Sizzling Skillet or Hatch Chile Cheeseburger in addition to other favorites on the value-added menu.

Hatch green chile sauce, a key ingredient infused in two of the new menu items - Santa Fe Sizzling Skillet and Hatch Chile Cheeseburger, has a unique, mild taste similar to tomatillo salsa, which adds an extra burst of flavor to both dishes. Hatch chiles, traditionally grown in Hatch, N.M., are the perfect reflection of Chili's Southwestern roots. New Chicken Club Quesadillas feature double-layered quesadillas stuffed with grilled chicken and Chili's popular Fire-Grilled Corn Guacamole.

Hungry yet? Check out the ingredients that make up these enticing new entrees:

  • Chicken Club Quesadillas: layers of grilled chicken, Applewood smoked bacon, Fire-Grilled Corn Guacamole, sauteed onions, bell pepper, Monterey Jack cheese and ancho-ranch dressing. Served with sour cream and house-made pico de gallo.
  • Hatch Chile Cheeseburger: Chili's signature Big Mouth® Burger with mild roasted Hatch green chile sauce, Jalapeno Jack cheese, cilantro-lime mayo and house-made pico de gallo. Served with homestyle fries.
  • Santa Fe Sizzling Skillet: cheese quesadillas, fajita chicken and grilled onions topped with Monterey Jack cheese and smothered in a mild roasted Hatch green chile sauce. Served in Chili's sizzling skillet.

"Our guests tell us our $20 Dinner for Two is an offer that delivers great value at an affordable price," said Krista Gibson, senior vice president of brand strategy for Chili's Grill & Bar. "We wanted to build on that success by leveraging our brand favorites and integrating unique Southwestern flavors like the mild roasted Hatch green chiles."

Got a sweet tooth? Chili's can satisfy that appetite too with the new Caramel Apple Cobbler; a warm, decadent cinnamon apple cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce.

Cool off your taste buds with a refreshing Spiked Texas Sweet Tea. A grown-up version of the Texas favorite, Chili's Spiked Texas Sweet Tea is made with Seagram's® Sweet Tea Vodka, fresh-squeezed lemons and agave nectar, to create a bold, refreshing taste.
