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.
I went with the Chicken bacon avocado salad. I was surprised by the quality of the ingredients.
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!
I would say the only problem I had with these new salads was figuring out which salad to try first!!!
