Are you like me? Do you not eat red meat? I am happy to report that I have some exciting news. As a non-red meat eater, eating out at most Mexican fast food chains has been a bit of challenge. Usually chicken is the only option giving us only a fraction of the menu to choose from.

On January 2, Del Taco introduced Turkey Tacos, making the company the first Mexican fast food chain to offer ground turkey as a protein option. Del Taco’s Turkey Tacos feature lean, seasoned ground turkey that has 33 percent less fat than its seasoned beef yet offers the same craveable flavor. Each Turkey Taco has only 150 calories.  Del Taco is also offering a Turkey CrunchTada Tostada, an extension of their popular CrunchTada product line.


I couldn’t wait to head to our local Del Taco and try one out for myself. The drive home with the food in the car was the longest 5 minutes of my life as the tacos smelled incredible. Once I got home I opened the wrapping on each taco and couldn’t believe how fresh everything looked. I divided the tacos amongst my kids and myself and went in for that first bite. After the first crunch I knew this was no ordinary taco. I swear I could bring them to a party and tell our friends that it was purchased at our local taqueria. The tacos were that good!


Priced at $1.29, the new Turkey Tacos are served in a crunchy corn or warm flour tortilla with freshly grated cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce and pico de gallo, made fresh daily at each Del Taco location. The Turkey Taco Meal, priced at $5, includes two tacos, chips with fresh pico de gallo salsa and a drink. When paired with a diet drink, the Turkey Taco Meal has only 430 calories. The product extends Del Taco’s line of “UnFreshing Believable,” high quality, great value menu selections.


The Turkey Tacos and Turkey CrunchTada Tostadas feature layers of fresh ingredients cooked, chopped, and grilled in Del Taco’s kitchens throughout the day:

  • Freshly made pico de gallo
  • Freshly-grated cheddar cheese
  • Lard-free beans slow-cooked from scratch
