Is it safe to heat and eat my Chili’s® frozen entrée once it is thawed?
Unfortunately, you should toss out your meal if it completely thaws. Depending on the time and temperature of the thawing process, the quality and food safety of any frozen product might be compromised. But please grab another frozen one, heat it up, and enjoy!
What types of Chili’s® frozen entrees are available in the frozen aisle?
There are currently eight 10-ounce single-serve Chili’s® entrées and five 22-ounce multi-serve meals, including Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Chicken Fajita Rice and Seasoned Chicken Bites with Honey Chipotle Sauce. All dishes are convenient as they are ready in less than 15 minutes in the microwave and less than 30 minutes in a conventional oven or on a stovetop. The ability to purchase a restaurant-quality meal in the frozen aisle is here, and with the variety and convenience of our products, that’s a win-win if you ask us!
Do you share coupons for Chili’s® frozen entrées?
Yes! We offer different kinds of coupons at different times. Please watch your local flyers and special sales or promotions at your grocery store. Also, check out our website for online coupons.
What is the nutritional profile of the products?
Chili’s frozen entrees do not contain any artificial colors, partially hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, MSG or added trans fats.
Where can I find Chili’s® Frozen Foods?
Starting in June 2014, Chili’s® single-serve entrées and multi-serve meals will be available at major retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Food Lion, H-E-B, Meijer, Giant Eagle, Schnucks and many more.
Do you have any gluten-free Chili’s® frozen entrees?
Since pasta is such a common ingredient in Chili’s frozen entrees, we don’t claim that any of our products are “gluten-free.” We make a lot of our meals with grain-based ingredients (especially wheat), and because individual sensitivity to gluten varies, we really can’t be sure that gluten is not present in our products, even those that are rice- or potato-based.
