Intervention – Crispy Chicken Crisper Tacos

October 4, 2009

I love me some Chilis and in most cases I can sympathize with other peoples addiction to the greatness on the Chilis menu. Of all the variety of items available on the vast menu there is one item that people just need to say NO to. The CRISPY CHICKEN CRISPER™ TACOS. This item may sound benign based on the menu description but its not. The entree of three extra crispy chicken breast tacos with applewood smoked bacon, house-made pico de gallo, mixed cheese and lettuce, drizzled with honey-chipotle and Ranch dressing, served with rice & black beans is the most unhealthy item on the menu. Check out the stats: Serving size – As Served; Calories 1990; Fat (g) 104; Sat Fat (g) 25; Carbs (g) 194; Prot(g) 72; Fiber (g) 13; Sod(mg) 5790! The average sized human man should only eat around 2000 calories a day. So after eating this meal that leaves 10 whole calories for the rest of the day. This entree exceeds the allotted saturated fat for the average sized male. This entree is so unhealthy it should be illegal to sell this item. Believe me, I understand its hard to say no but the first step is admitting you have a problem.

    We ate at Chili's again tonight, and I talked Erik out of getting the Triple CTs (that's what he calls them). When the guy brought them out to us, he broke the news…they will be getting rid of the Crispy Chicken Crisper tacos. You might as well have told Erik his dog died…he was crushed 🙂
