News: El Pollo Loco - New Pollo Bowl Varieties

El Pollo Loco continues to pump out limited-time menu items at a quick clip with their latest offering, three new, limited-time varieties of their Pollo Bowl.

The new Pollo Bowls are available in Chicken Mexican Cobb, Chicken Mole, and Chicken Ranchero. The Ultimate Double Chicken Pollo Bowl is also being featured but is part of the regular menu.

The Chicken Mexican Cobb comes with fire grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, corn, red peppers, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, Spanish  rice, pinto beans, chopped cabbage, and pico de gallo.

The Chicken Mole features the chain's signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken, hand-sliced avocado, sour cream, Spanish rice, pinto beans, chopped cabbage, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and pico de gallo topped with a traditional Mexican mole sauce made with chili peppers, peanuts, and a bit of cocoa.

The Chicken Ranchero Pollo Bowl features fire-grilled chicken, Spanish rice, seasoned black beans, sliced avocado, crumbled cotija cheese, chopped cabbage, sour cream and pico de gallo, topped with a ranchero sauce whose ingredients include onion, red and green peppers, guajillo and ancho chiles, and a blend of spices.

The Ultimate Double Chicken Pollo Bowl is basically the El Pollo Loco Pollo Bowl with a double portion of chicken. As such, it includes double the citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken and the standard sliced avocado, Spanish rice, pinto beans, lettuce, sour cream, shredded jack cheese, and pico de gallo.

The new Pollo Bowls are available at all El Pollo Loco restaurants starting at $5.49.

The chain is also offering a fall-themed Chicken Harvest Salad for a limited-time. The salad features flame-grilled chicken, green apples, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts drizzled with an aged balsamic glaze. The salad is available as an entree or as part of a family meal.
