The Chili's Brand:
Chili's has been spicing things up since 1975. Chili's opened as a fun Dallas burger joint that prided themselves on humble beginnings, following a devotion to great food, warm hospitality and community spirit. Today they have restaurants all over the world and continue to cook up affordable food in a casual atmosphere.

Wild or Mild / The review:
I was lucky enough to receive a $20 Gift card to try it out for myself (BUT I didn't say BY MYSELF.. lol) . The other night hubby had to work late, so I headed out to treat myself and the Dynamic Duo to a night out, and we were lucky enough to be joined by my friend Kris of Our Crazy Life and the Triple Threat (Her triplets, cause THAT is how I ROLL.. lol).
As usual our local Chili's did NOT disappoint, they were clean, courteous and on point with seating us on time (can NOT emphasis how big of a deal that is for ME especially when I'm out with the gremlins.. TWO unhappy 3 year olds is NOT fun in public.. lol), and our server Melissa ROCKED!!!
I decided to change things up a little from my usual and try out a little something from their wild or mild promotion..
On the “Wild or Mild” menu, there’s an equal counterpart in dish options on either side. You can choose from:
- Kicked Up Queso or Skillet Queso
- Blazin’ Big Mouth Bites or Big Mouth Bites
- Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas or Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadillas
- Crispy Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers or Crispy Sweet Maple BBQ Chicken Crispers
AND I am neither WILD or MILD (in case you were wondering..).. lol.. I, like a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.. lol
We started off with the Skillet Queso.. We went the mild rout so we could share with the kidlets, but it was devoured mostly my me and one on the TT. It was the perfect start to the meal, creamy, with a little kick and the perfect compliment to the crunch warm tortilla chips. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
After that I KNEW I'd have to hit the wild side, ad decided to try out the Crispy Chipotle Honey Crispers, and was NOT disappointed, the chicken was juicy, crunchy and had the PERFECT amount of heat. The only thing I can say that I WAS a little disappointed in was the corn, it was a little tasteless and soggy, BUT, not a big concern, the girls LOVED it.
I can honestly say this gal (who hardly EVER tries new things) is excited she went out of her comfort zone, because I just found a NEW favorite thing to order at Chili's.
By the way... you can also get a FREE Chips and Queso by joining their E-mail club!!!
