FRIENDLY MENU ITEM’S AT CHILI’S

APPETIZERS

The appetizer section here will probably be one you’ll want to avoid. With lots of deep fried and high fat/carb options, it’s best to steer clear of this section of the menu.

MAIN COURSE

Chili’s is known for their wide variety of American and Tex-Mex like cuisine. And since they have a Guiltless Grill menu section, they are likely to be high on your list of places to go when out to eat. Options like carne asada, sirloin steak, chicken breast, salmon and salads are all wonderful choices. You’ll want to steal clear of any saucy options like the ribs as well as fried chicken and quesadillas, since they’ll be high on the calories, fat and carbs.
Keep your focus on the Guiltless Grill menu to make the most out of your calories or bites. The Cilantro-Lime Carne Asada is a wonderful blend of Tex-Mex flavors. Served with Mexican rice and black beans, coming in at only 550 calories is a steal. The 10oz sirloin is a wonderful source of protein (59g!) topped with grilled avocado-yum! Paired with a side of roasted asparagus, this is another great steal at 490 calories.
The Ancho Salmon is a seared chile-rubbed Atlantic salmon with spicy citrus-chile sauce, cilantro, and queso fresco. It’s served with Mexican rice & steamed broccoli and only 620 calories.

The Margarita Chicken only tastes like something guilty, but we promise its not! Topped with pico and tortilla strips with two sides- Mexican rice and black beans, you’re sure to fill up. If you’re wanting a filling salad, the Santa Fe Chicken Salad is the one to go with. Spicy grilled chicken, pico, avocado, cilantro, tortilla strips, house-made ranch & a drizzle of spicy Santa Fe sauce- that Tex-Mex flavor is hard to beat coming in at 560 calories.

SIDES

When it comes to sides, they’re pretty top notch too- Mexican rice, roasted asparagus, broccoli, corn on the cob, black beans.. the possibilities are great! Just keep your eye on the “Our Good Sides” section.
