Chili’s Skillet Queso

Raven Higheagle


Any other Chili's fans in the house?? I absolutely love that place! When we lived in Texas last year, Chili's was the only worthwhile sit-down restaurant in the whole town, so we frequented it a lot. Since leaving there, I've heard a lot of people say that they can't eat at Chili's because they went there so much in Texas, but not Bubba and I. We still eat there all the time!
My favorite appetizer though, is their skillet queso, served nice and warm.
