Chili's as coupons for free chips and choice of dip with purchase of an adult entree.

Chili's recently sent coupons to its e-mail list subscribers offering free chips and choice of dip with purchase of an adult entree.

"Guacamole, queso or salsa, oh my!" reads the e-mail. "They all go great with Chili's famous chips."

The offer is valid from October 25 through October 27. It is not valid as part of the $20 Dinner for Two or any other promotion. There is a limit of one offer per table, and multiple coupons can not be combined. Full-Size Flatbread qualifies as an adult entree.

According to Chili's, the nutritional value of the Salsa is unavailable.

Chili's web site claims that the Fire-Grilled Guacamole contains 1180 calories, 620 of which are from fat (69 grams total, 10 grams saturated, 0 trans fats). It contains no cholesterol, 2070 milligrams of sodium, 130 grams of carbohydrates, 21 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar and 16 grams of protein.

Chili's writes that the Skillet Queso contains 1580 calories, 860 of which are from fat (96 grams total, 34 grams saturated, 0 trans fats). It contains 135 milligrams of cholesterol, 3890 grams of sodium, 135 grams of carbohydrates, 12 grams of fiber, 15 grams of sugar and 44 grams of protein.

The chips themselves contain 910 calories, 410 of which are from fat (45 grams total, 6 grams saturated, 0 trans fats). They contain no cholesterol, 1600 milligrams of sodium, 112 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugar and 13 grams of protein.

Chili's serves 281 million guests per year, or enough to feed the entire population of New York City 35 times. Chili's sells 60.4 million pounds of fajita meat per year, which is four times the weight of an average U.S. military submarine. Chili’s serves guests 20,000 miles of Baby Back Ribs every year, almost enough to wrap around the globe! The number of burgers Chili's serves each year could stretch the continental United States. And Chili’s sells enough Presidente Margaritas every year to fill up more than 4,500 bathtubs.

Chili's was founded in Dallas in 1975. It specializes in selling Southwestern food.
