#CoronaRita for the Señoritas?

This post brought to you by Chili’s Grill & Bar. All opinions are 100% mine.

…Or us señoras and our señors!  Cinco de Mayo is on Saturday this year.  By Nani rules that makes it a 2-week celebration!  That has to include a trip to Chili’s!  The featured adult beverage, the CoronaRita at Chili's combines a margarita, made with Jose Quervo Especial tequila, with the classic flavor of Corona for a taste that says “Arriba!  Let’s party!”

I love Chili's for their lighter fare items that taste every bit as good as the rest of the menu.  Scotty and I stopped there for our Wednesday dinners quite of then when I was n Michigan.  It’s a wonderful place now to get together with the old gang and just celebrate us!  We’re planning a lunch for Scotty this month because just a couple days after Cinco de Mayo is…Cincuenta de Scott.  Definitely a reason to gather to celebrate and Chili’s has that sentimental value too.

I definitely want to try the Sweet and Spicy Chicken!  It’s made with a habanero and orange glaze with onions and peppers.  My mouth is watering writing about it.  And ooh! Soup-a-holic me is in love with the idea of trying the Southwest Chicken and Sausage soup made with chicken and sausage with chunky veggies and topped with tortilla strips.  Just a cup though, it sounds like a hearty soup!   David doesn’t like things as spicy as I do, so I don’t see him joining me for anything with a habanero sauce, but I can totally see him trying the new 10-ounce Classic Sirloin steak with veggies and loaded mashed potatoes.  He’d probably start with the also classic Chili’s chili.

Of course we’d have to kick off that birthday dinner with fabulous Chili’s appetizers to complement those CoronaRita at Chili's!  When it’s a larger group, we usually go for a couple of the Triple Dippers to have a nice variety.  I love the Spinach and Artichoke Dip and The Boneless Buffalo Wings but right now and for a limited time, they have Cheesesteak Sliders. I know those will be in the order!

There is so much to love at Chili’s and now even more new menu items.  What about you?  What would you go out to Chili’s, to celebrate?   What do you find the most tempting there?  I’d love to know!  Maybe there’s something else I need to try!  Would you like to try the CoronaRita at Chili's?

I've seen this on Pinterest. I must go and try one! I like margaritas and corona but can't picture them combined.

Cinco de Mayo has new meaning for us in our household. Eight years ago this coming Saturday the meaning of Cinco de Mayo was replaced with the tiny cries of our little girl. Sure has been a funtime watching her grow and learn these past 8 years. And she is very glad to have everybody at Chili's on Saturday helping her celebrate!

Yay Chili's for celebrating her birthday, SG! But she doesn't get a CoronaRita! I think they do make a good Shirley Temple though. :)
