Besides Chili's

Went to Chilis last night for the first time ever. The food was decent but the Tortilla Chips were awesome. Very thin and light, most of the store bought brands are okay but the always seem to thick.

Any commercial brands close to Chillis type?

Screw the chips (I like On The Border better anyway, or a good blue corn chip) but their salsa is like crack!

Anyone know about their salsa???

El Milagro brand tortilla chips are close, I've found



ETA: but you've got to re-heat them in the oven, of course!

Yep these.

Next time try their Bacon Bigmouth burger, it is to die for.

Also the chips i think are oiled and then microwaved.

You can do Chili's to go, they will give you two full bags of chips and a bunch of salsa (since its supposed to be all you can eat)
