You know when you're growing up and your mom asks what your favorite meal is so that she can make it for your birthday?
I always had a hard time with that one, there are just so many tasty foods out there!
Now, as a grown up, I'm still not sure what I would select as my one favorite... so when Chili's wanted to know my three favorites? And how much I would enjoy it if they were all on one plate? My mind (and taste buds) started to race thinking about putting things like fettucini alfredo with cream cheese wontons and gooey fudge brownies...
So, following the thought that why just have one favorite food when you could have three, Chili's came up with their delicious new Triple Dipper of tasty appetizers!
What is this new concoction?
The Triple Dipper is three appetizers and three dipping sauces and now also has the addition of two types of potato skins and the all-new honey chipotle shrimp! By giving diners the chance to mix and match their favorites, The Triple Dipper adds up to a pretty perfect meal.
Thinking this sounded like a great way to be able to customize our menu to exactly what we wanted, my husband and I called the kids to the car and off we went to Chili's to check out just how much our bellies would enjoy this for ourselves.
I was happy to see that there were ten delicious appetizers offered... but because so many of them looked good, making the final decision wasn't as easy as we had anticipated. Opting to get something that everyone would enjoy, we chose the Loaded Potato Skins, Big Mouth Bites, and the Fried Cheese.
Delicious! My husband is a huge fan of the Loaded Potato Skins (he buys them frozen from the grocery store to eat at home as well), the Big Mouth Bites are just the right size mini burgers, and the kids were crazy about the Fried Cheese. Who isn't?
In fact, I think I looked away for only a minute or two and suddenly that full plate had been reduced down quite a bit.
And did you see that little hand up in the right in the picture? That's Little Sister B caught in the act of heading back for more!
All in all, we really enjoyed the Triple Dipper. Due to the various food palates that are in my family (vegetarian or just picky), being able to choose precisely what will show up on our plates makes the meal even better!
