It’s Hatch Chili season and Z’Tejas has released their special Hatch Chili Fest Menu. The Hatch Chili is only available for a few months of the year and during that time Z’Tejas offers this special menu at their 5 locations in Arizona and 3 in Texas.
The Hatch menu includes starters, entrees and even dessert. Don’t miss the dessert!

While you’re dining you must order their cornbread. Z’Tejas’ Cornbread for a Cause was launched in 2015 to raise money for people in the communities of their restaurants. They have donated over $150,00 to local charities since the program started. And the cornbread is pretty yummy.
This was my favorite – That’ll Leave a Mark with Makers Mark Bourbon, Licor 43, peach, and lemon.
Another favorite of mine is the Chambord Margarita. Z’Tejas makes awesome frozen margaritas.
And then there’s the Cafe Colada Frozen Margarita
And the Frozen Sangria. Perfect for hot summer days.
disclosure: I was invited to a media preview dinner of the Hatch Chili menu so that I could experience it and share with my follower. All opinions are my own.
