Chuy’s Tex Mex is celebrating their 28th Annual Green Chile Festival from Monday, August 15 through Sunday, September 4 at both their Raleigh and Cary restaurants.

Five new menu items will be available for a limited three-week period during the peak of the Green Chile harvest season in Hatch, New Mexico. These include the Queso Funded, Spinach Chicken Enchiladas, Green Chile Street Tacos, Burrito Loco and The Valley Combo. They’ll also feature a Frozen Prickly Pear ‘Rita and the famous New Mexican Martini, made with green chile-infused tequila.

I believe I am going to have to try that Frozen Prickly Pear ‘Rita!

This year Chuy’s is bringing in over 2 million pounds of peppers from the fertile fields of Hatch, New Mexico. During the festival Green Chiles are harvested daily to ensure that you get a taste of their unique flavor, straight from the farm to Chuy’s in Raleigh-Durham.

Customers are encouraged to join in the fun by posting a photo of their favorite Green Chile Fest dish to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #ChuysGreenChileFest for a chance to win daily prizes and a grand prize trip for two to Austin, TX. To learn more, head to their Facebook page.

The Giveaway

To give two lucky readers a chance to enjoy the unique taste of the Hatch Green Chile for free, Chuy’s is giving away TWO “dinner for two” gift cards—appetizer, entrée and dessert included!

To enter, please share your favorite Chuy’s dish (or beverage) and why you love it in the Comments section (click on the comments bubble at the top right of this post to leave a comment). You'll also need to fill out the very short form below.

    I know it's a bit past the deadline, but still hope I can be entered to win.

    I love their Fully-Loaded Nacho Car during Happy Hour. Great selection and best of all, it's FREE! Also, their margaritas are pretty good.

    I love the fried avocado. I think it is stuffed as well. Only problem is that they only have it on Mondays I think.

    I like the chicken Fajitas at Chuy's. The sauce that they are cooked in is so good!

    I have never had anything bad at Chuys. Make anything with Hatch chile and it will be a winner.
