Lesli's Mesa Meal

Ok this is the last installment of what 3 of the 4 Fat Chick's ate at Bobby Flay's house. I hope we haven't single handed ruined any of your diets, because after indulging in our fabulous Vegas food it was MAJOR hard for me to get back on the WW bandwagon, but alas... we all have to do what we have to do.

At first glance of the menu I considered the :

Grilled Red Onion, Arugula
Ancho-Chile Mayonnaise
+ Southwestern Fries

Then our delightful little waiter informed me that this was a COLD sandwich. Who wants a cold pork tenderloin sandwich? Not this fat chick!

So, I settled on the...

Chorizo, Red Chile Sauce + Goat Cheese
with HouseMade Grits

Us Fat Chicks are sharers, and we all took one bite then passed our plates around. I'll admit that after my first bite I loved Allison's best and actually asked her if I could trade her. Thankfully, she said Heck to the NO! I stuck out my enchiladas and they were FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! The red chile sauce absolutely made the dish rich and the goat cheese made is succulent. And being from the south it is a requirement to like grits, and I don't love them, but I knew if anyone could make me love them, Bobby could. He did not disappoint. The were creamy and spicy and delicious.

Actually, when I was talking with the GM after our meal he asked what I thought and my exact words were, "Had it been appropriate, I would have LICKED my plate." You know, it was Vegas... maybe it wouldn't have been THAT inappropriate!
