DALLAS, Jan. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Come find food for every mood at Chili's(R) Grill & Bar with the brand's introduction of the new 'Wild or Mild' menu. Guests can take their taste buds for a ride on the wild side with kicked up versions of Chili's favorites or enjoy classic flavors with the original recipes. For a limited time at participating Chili's locations nationwide, the 'Wild or Mild' menu features two appetizers and six entrees, giving guests a sample of flavorful items which are sure to ignite the senses.

Chili's 'Wild or Mild' menu options include:

  • NEW Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas - with onions, peppers, jalapeno seasoning and jalapeno- Jack cheese. Served with sour cream, house-made pico de gallo and ancho-ranch dressing.

MILD:

  • Skillet Queso - Chili's signature hot, melted cheese dip with ground seasoned beef. Served with warm tostada chips and house-made salsa.
  • Big Mouth(R) Bites - four mini burgers with layers of flavor - applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, sautéed onions and ranch dressing. Served with crispy onion strings, homestyle fries and a side of ranch dressing.

"'Wild or Mild' is the best of both worlds for guests who want to spice up their taste buds with our extra bold flavors, or go for something with less kick and just as mouth-watering, like our new Crispy Sweet Maple BBQ Chicken Crispers," said Krista Gibson, Senior Vice President of Brand Strategy for Chili's Grill & Bar. "From hot and spicy to traditional and savory, Chili's menu has it all."
