Your backup plan when you can’t get a reservation at Chili’s

In the hilarious movie Due Date, Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifinwhatshisface get into trouble making a money transfer because Kenny Fucking Powers has a reservation at Chili’s. But y’see, me, I can’t get a reservation at Chili’s cuz the closest one (on this side of the border) is in Regina. Luckily, Maple Leaf Loblaws is serving up Chili’s to go, straight from the frozen-food section, son!

I could probably just go to Chipotle, get the same thing, and stick it in the freezer for a few hours, but I wouldn’t wanna get all High and Dry with Hysteriosis (or even worse, Pyromania)! It also wouldn’t be served up in this bright red bowl:

OK, it might not look like much in its frozen state, but once you thaw it out…actually, it kinda looks worse.

As far as frozen entrees go, though, this mows down Michelina’s and kicks the shit outta Swanson’s. You’ve got some tender, fall-aparty chicken, a nice spice from the beans and peppers, and enough rice to feed a small person. I can’t say I was still a hungry man after this…but then again, I did have an extra-large cheese pizza for lunch. (I’m on the Dan Janssen diet, bro!)
