Diners and bloggers alike were outraged by the fried-onion Chili's appetizer, the Awesome Blossom. The unhealthy behemoth was removed from the menu, but its replacement is only a bit better.
This appetizer is meant to be shared, but even one-quarter of the dish delivers an entire day's limit for fat.
One appetizer: 2,130 calories; 213g fat, 31g saturated; 1,320mg sodium.
Choose this instead: Chili's doesn't have particularly healthy appetizers. If you must have one, try the Chips and Hot Sauce (470 calories). However, the chips' sodium is 2,790 milligrams - 500 milligrams over the maximum daily intake.
