chilis food at home

Thanks to Chili’s® At Home for sponsoring this story. And thanks to our readers for supporting our sponsors! 

This past weekend we had a fun “staycation” in Fort Worth. We visited several art museums and proceeded to eat our way through Fort Worth (more about that in a future post). As we were driving back home in the mid afternoon we realized that we had very minimal groceries. After a weekend away we didn’t have much interest in making a big mess of our kitchen. So, we stopped into our local grocery store to pick up a few different flavors of Chili’s® At Home.

After several days of bold adventures and playing tourists in our own metroplex we were certainly hoping to round out the weekend with a relaxing evening at home. For that particular Sunday, quick and easy was our goal and we were pleasantly surprised at how flavorful both of our dishes were. We opted for a side of zucchini and some summer beeruh to make the meal. I don’t know how many frozen foods your taste buds have experienced, but these are by far the best I’ve had!

Since we both wanted to try something different, we opted for the single serve but I could see the larger options working for a family meal. I like the idea of pairing them with something fresh… and an adult beverage. Because, really you should celebrate finding an easily accomplished meal. I had Island Chicken and Rice, Rory had Chicken Bacon Ranch… because bacon.

The new line of Chili’s® frozen foods (in partnership with Bellisio Foods) is inspired by some of the restaurant’s most popular and innovative dishes. In case you were wondering, here are your flavor options:


  1. Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese
  2. Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo
  3. Cheesy Chicken Pasta Florentine
  4. Chicken Bacon Ranch
  5. Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl
  6. Island Chicken & Rice
  7. Mango Chicken with Rice
  8. Pepper Jack Mac ‘N’ Cheese


  1. Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese
  2. Chicken Bacon Ranch
  3. Chicken Fajita Rice
  4. Nacho Potatoes with Beef & Bacon
  5. Seasoned Chicken Bites with Honey Chipotle Sauce

Although, fair warning, our grocery store was SOLD OUT of several of the flavor options. The people of the grocery store have spoken… they like them some Cajun Style Chicken Alfredo!

And so… here you have it, our quick, tasty, and bold dinner coffee-table style with a side of Orange is the New Black on Netflix and his and hers beer choices.
