Del Taco's Turkey Now Made with Jennie-O Turkey

Del Taco's seasoned ground turkey is now made with Jennie-O brand turkey and has been slightly tweaked.

I reached out to Del Taco for comment and was told the new turkey is made with a "new proprietary turkey recipe developed with category expert Jennie-O [that] features chunkier ground turkey, along with a slightly-adjusted seasoning for the ultimate flavor combination." Basically, they looked to improve the texture and flavor.

Like the previous version, the turkey option contains 33 percent less fat than Del Taco's seasoned beef, while offering a similar flavor (I tried the previous version a while back).

Del Taco's turkey menu currently features the following items:

- Turkey Tacos - a crunchy corn or soft flour tortilla filled with seasoned ground turkey, lettuce, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and pico de gallo.

- Turkey Combo Burrito - seasoned ground turkey, slow-cooked beans, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and zesty red sauce, in a warm flour tortilla.

- Turkey CrunchTada Tostada: a thick, wavy, crunchy corn shell layered with slow-cooked beans, taco sauce, seasoned ground turkey, lettuce, and hand-grated cheddar cheese.

- Deluxe Turkey Taco Salad: seasoned ground turkey, slow-cooked beans, lettuce, tomatoes, hand-grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and mild taco sauce, served in a crunchy tortilla bowl.
