I ate one last week and it was SO GOOD!!



Does it have soy? And if not, where can I get them for home?

Hey! I'm not sure about the soy in the burgers, but I have to agree, they are wonderful!!! I would love to find them at the supermarkets or somewhere, but I've never seen anything marketed by Chili's around here?



Also, we went out to eat there the other night, and I ordered the portobello fajitas with guacamole & pico de gallo and it was awesome!!!

So, if your a mushroom fan, I suggest you try these the next time you go!! But of course you have to take into consideration that they do prepare them in the same pans as the normal meat fajitas, so if that might bother you, then they might not work??



Chili's, I have found are pretty good to leave out anything or add anything you ask! Yeah, Chili's!!!!

are the burgers vegan - anyone know?



Hmmm and are those portabello fajita's new? Never saw them before at my local chili's. (But it's been a while since i've gone.) Wonder if they use any butter in the prep, otherwise ... just from sounds of it, it might be something I could actually eat there. ?

No, according to an e-mail from Chillis a few years ago. I know they had egg white and perhaps, but I'm not positive, some cheese. Of course, the recipe could have changed since then.

The actual portobella mushroom fajitas aren't listed as such on their menues, they are actuallly listed as a portobella & steak fajita, but I just asked them to omit the meat, and they were very willing to do it.



So, it was just the grilled portobello mushrooms, onions & peppers. I have to say, they were really good!!

Thanks for the info, Michelle. I decided to take your lead and I sent Chili's an email from their web site to get some updated information on their stuff. I'll post it back here when I hear something. (Or in the Chili's thread I created last week.)

I didn't like the black bean burger....at all. I actually involntarily vomited after trying to get through about half of it



Maybe it was prepared wrong?

Wow. That's a strong reaction. Maybe there is something in it that doesn't agree with you. I have a mild anaphylactic reaction to bananas. I had a smoothie with a bit of banana in it and started choking. If a food doesn't agree with you, avoid it.

Funny, I was there tonight. That is what I got. It was just okay, that I left half of it on my plate. I swear they had other veggie options before. I have not ate there in awhile. I do not think I will be going there anytime soon again.

I think it is the same as the Morningstar Farms black bean burger. It tastes really similar anyway.

It's not bad, although I like the one from Bennigan's better. The one from Chili's gives me some rotten farts for like a week, so now I avoid them like the plague. So now I get the Cajun Chicken Pasta with broccoli instead of the chicken. Although I think I'm going to start getting it with EVOO instead of the alfredo sauce so my intestines will respect me afterwards.

Wow, same here! My family knows to run away when i let them loose! No other beans or foods (other than dairy-lactose intolerant) give me gas like this burger does! I'm glad to know im not the only one

Guess what guys... I got updated info from Chili's. There was no mention of egg white in the burger any more but there IS dairy. So... perhaps that would account for some of the gassiness?

I'm normally completely ok with farting, everybody does it, but after about 2-3 days of those rotten Chili's farts I'm about ready to jump out the window. It's a good thing I live on the 1st floor. It could be the dairy mixed with the beans. Dairy does seem to cause problems with me. But man, those burgers could be used in chemical warfare.
