Chuy’s Kicks off Green Chile Fest With Limited Time Menu

Chuy’s restaurants have kicked off their 27th annual Green Chili Festival, which celebrates the green chile harvest in Hatch, New Mexico with a special menu offered for a limited three week period.

Chuy's Green Chile Pork Tamales

From now through September 6, all three Central Florida locations will offer this menu which features six new dishes including Green Chile Pork Tamales (pictured above), Bacon Wrapped Pork Rellenos and Veggie Fajitas.

Wash it all down with new drinks including a Frozen Watermelon Margarita and a Spicy Cucumber Texas Martini. The New Mexican Martini, made with green chile infused tequila, is always a favorite, too.

As the first to host a green chile festival outside of New Mexico, Chuy’s commitment to offering the most flavorful pepper on the planet continues today. This year alone Chuy’s contracted with farmers to grow over 2 million pounds of the freshest green chiles just for their restaurants. When the chiles reached their height of flavor in August, Chuy’s sent a team of restaurant managers to the Hatch Valley to bring back the finest, fresh-picked chiles for the festival.

This year’s festival features a music theme, and customers are encouraged to join in on the fun by visiting their local Chuy’s Green Chile Festival merchandise booth for festival tees, free concert ear plugs and guitar picks.

They can also enter a chance to win free Chuy’s for a year by posting a picture of their favorite Green Chile Festival menu item to Instagram and tagging @chuysrestaurant with #GreenChileFest.

Chuy’s Central Florida locations are:

  • 8123 International Drive in Orlando at the I-Shops (corner of I-Drive and Sand Lake)
  • 6688 S. Semoran Blvd in Orlando at WallyPark
  • 7913 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy in Kissimmee (west of Walt Disney World)
