I like to cook …a lot. I also like to eat out because lets be honest..sometimes this Mom doesn’t want to plan every meal, every day and sometimes life is chaotic and we’re on the run a lot. Its nice to be able to stop some where and grab a quick bite. I saw recently that Del Taco rolled out some new items on their menu: Handcrafted Ensaladas. They are priced at $5.49, under 600 calories and made with fresh ingredients (might I add they come with hand sliced avocado- I LOVE avocado)!
So here is the low down on these new salads. They have three to choose from:
Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad: features freshly grilled marinated chicken, fresh sliced Hass avocado, crispy hand-chopped bacon, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, and fresh house-made tortilla chips atop a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with new cilantro pepita ranch dressing and only 590 calories.
Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad: includes a fresh blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce topped with fresh sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, fresh house-made tortilla chips, spicy jack cheese, seasoned black beans, and freshly grilled marinated chicken. Served with salsa casera and only 510 calories.
Signature Taco Salad: features seasoned beef, freshly sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, cheddar cheese freshly grated from 40-pound blocks, chopped cilantro, seasoned black beans, fresh house-made tortilla chips, and real sour cream on a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with salsa casera and only 540 calories.
I took the family to Del Taco for dinner this week and I had to try one of these new salads out.
Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad
I went with the Chicken bacon avocado salad. I was surprised by the quality of the ingredients.
Fresh Pico de Gallo and Cilantro
The lettuce was crisp, the pico de gallo and the cilantro looked very fresh, bacon was crispy, the chicken was juicy. I loved that it had a few chips in the mix. It was nice to satisfy my hanger pains (yes, I was at the hanger point of hungry) and my all my cravings for under 600 calories!
Under 600 Calories
I would say the only problem I had with these new salads was figuring out which salad to try first!!!
