Recently they had their annual Green Chile Festival and invited me to check it out – I’m always up for Mexican food – so that was a quick HELL YES!
We started with their chips & salsa – which is awesome. The salsa has a little kick but it’s not too hot – I’m a wuss. The chips are the star to me – they’re super thin and crispy – yum!
One thing I love is that they have this little room where they make the tortillas from scratch – right there in the middle of the restaurant! Love it! I think I have found my next job. 🙂
Also – their queso – it’s just plain amazing – (I have recreated it pretty well – check out my recipe) – so I have to get that for every visit. Delish!
Larry got one of their enchiladas – I don’t remember which one but it was super cheesy – so good. I was happy he couldn’t completely finish it – because then I got to take some home for lunch!
If you’ll notice on the photo above – there was something on the Chile Pepper menu that caught my eye – Frito Pie Enchiladas!!! This was awesome! The green chile sauce and the fritos crunching in the enchiladas – total yum! The portion size at Chuy’s is huge also – so there’s always leftovers (2nd lunch!).
And even though I was stuffed – there is one thing I can’t leave Chuy’s without – their Tres Leches Cake. It’s literally a scientific miracle. The cake sits in milk but doesn’t get soggy. HOW DOES IT DO THAT???? I have no idea – but that shiz is crazy good and a piece that huge lasts me 2-3 days!
Why Should You Go? Well – Green Chile Fest is over – but the good food isn’t. I love Chuy’s – it’s quickly become one of my favorite – maybe because of the queso and the cake – but they – I’m simple – that’s all it takes.
