Go From Sweet To Heat With Chili's® Grill & Bar Pick-a-Pepper Offering

DALLAS, Aug. 27, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Chili's® Grill & Bar wants guests to know there's much more to the multi-faceted range of peppers than just heat. That's why the casual-dining brand introduced a new line of dishes as part of a Pick-a-Pepper platform, with six bold entrees showcasing the versatility of peppers.

From mild and tangy, to spicy and smoky, Chili's features a pepper for everyone. If guests aren't sure which peppers tempt their palates, an easy-to-use guide is available to help educate them on the range of pepper flavors. This tool outlines the heat level and specific characteristics of peppers represented throughout the Pick-a-Pepper entrees – and the entire Chili's menu. 

"Our latest culinary innovation, Pick-a-Pepper, fits perfectly with our namesake and our culinary DNA – after all, Chili's knows chile peppers, from  chipotle to roasted red pepper and jalapeno to habanero," said Claudia Schaefer, vice president of marketing for Chili's Grill & Bar. "We're giving our guests a full range of entrees highlighting peppers that ignite their senses with a variety of flavors and heat levels."

Chili's six Pick-a-Pepper entrees are as follows (*denotes new menu item):
  • * Smoky Chipotle Chicken Fajitas – sizzling grilled chicken, sauteed onions and bell peppers kicked-up with chipotle pesto sauce and melted Monterey Jack cheese. Topped with crispy onion strings;
