New Carne Asada Menu at El Pollo Loco

El Pollo Loco releases a limited-time, steak-centric menu with five new Carne Asada entrees. The carne asada featured in the promotion is made with beef marinated in citrus, salt, and pepper and fire-grilled in the chain's signature style.

The Carne Asada Burrito features fire-grilled steak, sliced avocado, rice, pinto beans, cabbage, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, pico de gallo, and poblano cream wrapped inside a 12" flour tortilla.

The Carne Asada Tostada Salad includes the new steak on a bed of rice, pinto beans, lettuce, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and pico de gallo, all inside of a fried tostada shell. The salad comes with creamy cilantro dressing.

The Carne Asada Tacos come two to an order and are filled with fire-grilled steak, sliced avocado, cabbage, fresh cilantro, and a smoky chipotle salsa inside of a 6" corn/flour blend tortilla.

The Carne Asada Stuffed Quesadilla features the new steak inside of a 12" flour tortilla folded into a hexagon along with pico de gallo, cabbage, fresh cilantro, and melted Monterey Jack cheese.

The Carne Asada Wet Burrito is filled with the marinated steak, pinto beans, rice, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and pico de gallo inside of a 12" flour tortilla, then topped with enchilada sauce, crumbled cotija cheese, and fresh cilantro.

This isn't the first time steak has made it onto the El Pollo Loco menu, but it was pulled back in 2011. In recent years, the chain has been offering shredded beef as the red-meat option instead. Depending on the success of the current carne asada menu, we might see steak continue to make future appearances.
