Good Things Come in 3’s Event - a Giveaway!

Sunday, we were out running errands and everyone was starting to get a little bit hungry. Rather than grabbing a snack so close to dinner or ending our errands early, we decided that we would stay out for dinner. So, we headed over to Chili's for an early dinner.

As a mom, I really like the variety offered on the Pepper Pal kid's menu. They offer eleven main dishes and eleven side dishes. That means that there are 121 combinations possible! Now that is what I call choice. Plus, all of the kid's meals include a beverage.

The kids quickly decided on pizza with cinnamon apples and a hamburger with mandarin oranges from the kid's menu. Of course, it can never be that easy, so when my son ordered his pizza, suddenly my daughter changed her mind and ordered a pizza. (Then, five minutes later she complained, that she wanted a hamburger. When the pizza arrived, she happily consumed it.)

My husband quickly settled on the Monterey Chicken, his favorite dish at Chili's.

I, on the other hand, was torn, I couldn't decide what to get at first, but then, I decided to get many flavors all on one dish, by trying their Triple Dipper appetizer as my dinner.

There were a number of familiar appetizer favorites to choose from, and a few new items. I decided to go with the new Memphis Barbeque Skins with sour cream, the new Honey-Chipotle Shrimp with ranch and the Big Mouth Bites with ranch. I considered doing the Boneless Buffalo Wings, but decided to stick with some new things instead.

If you aren't familiar, the Memphis Barbeque Skins feature potato skins loaded with pulled pork, cheese and Chili's classic BBQ sauce. The Honey-Chipotle Shrimp is a battered shrimp topped with a sweet and spicy, honey-chipotle barbeque sauce. The Big Mouth Bites are mini-hamburgers, complete with applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, sauteed onions and ranch dressing.


I loved that I could enjoy so many flavors on one dish. I had never had ranch dressing with hamburgers before and I must say, I rather liked it. I think that I might have to consider making that a regular condiment when we serve burgers at home too. The honey-chipotle barbeque sauce was delicious, but I don't know that I have ever had shrimp with barbeque sauce and it was an unusual experience for me.

Right now, Chili's is having the Shout Out to Eat Out Triple Dipper sweepstakes. You can enter to win a $20 Chili's Gift Card Daily Prize or a $333 Grand Prize, by creating your own terrific trio by uploading a photo of your face into one of their terrific trio images.
