Vegan Options at Chili’s (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at Chili's

The vegan options at Chili’s don’t include a lot of main dishes, but there are a few sides that you can piece together. Most disappointing is that the Black Bean Patty contains egg and milk which removes it as a vegan option. You can always go with a salad (with a few modifications) or piece together some Black Beans, Rice and Steamed Broccoli.

Ryan’s Pick: I went with the Chips & Guacamole which was good, but then when it came to a main dish I just went with Flour Tortillas, Mexican Rice & Beans with a side of salsa. It was fine. Nothing great, but not what I necessarily want to be paying money for at a restaurant.

Jen’s Pick: I got the same as Ryan. I don’t know what is special about Chili’s Chips & Salsa but they’re good! Maybe it’s a nostalgic thing from when I was young.
