Chili's Launches New Burritos

Chili's adds new burritos to the menu in four varieties: Grilled Smoked Chicken, Smothered Prime Rib, Smothered Smoked Chicken, and Smothered Carnitas.

The Grilled Smoked Chicken Burrito features smoked chicken, three-cheese blend, pico de gallo, smoky pasilla-honey chile sauce, and citrus-chile rice wrapped in a warm flour tortilla, which is then grilled. Black beans and more pasilla-honey chile sauce come on the side. Prices vary but it's going for $8.99 in my area.

The Smothered Prime Rib Burrito includes pieces of prime rib, three-cheese blend, pico de gallo, and citrus-chile rice wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. It comes smothered with ancho-chile sauce, green chile sauce, and melted cheese that is then topped with corn & black bean salsa and chopped cilantro. Black beans come on the side. Being that it's made with prime rib, the price is a bit more at $11.59.

The Smothered Smoked Chicken Burrito takes an un-grilled Smoked Chicken Burrito and covers it with sour cream, melted cheese, pasilla-honey chile sauce, and chopped cilantro. It also comes with beans on the side. The price is the same as the grilled version at $8.99.
