News: El Pollo Loco - New Puffy Shell Tacos

New at El Pollo Loco for a limited time, Puffy Shell Chicken Tacos feature thick flour tortillas that are cooked to develop a "super-crisp" crust while remaining soft and airy within.

The new tacos come in three varieties: Chicken & Chorizo, Chicken Avocado Poblano, and Chicken Guacamole.

The Chicken & Chorizo Puffy Shell Taco features shredded, flame-grilled chicken, pork chorizo, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, cabbage, poblano salsa, and pico de gallo on a puffy taco shell.

The Chicken Avocado Poblano comes with chopped, flame-grilled chicken, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce blend, poblano cream sauce, pico de gallo, and avocado slices on a puffy taco shell.

The Chicken Guacamole Puffy Shell Taco features fire-grilled chicken, pinto beans, guacamole, cotija cheese, cabbage, pico de gallo, and sour cream on a puffy taco shell.

The suggested price starts at $5.49, which runs on the high-end for fast food tacos.

The puffy shell sounds remarkably similar to Taco Bell's Chalupa although it looks more pillow-y.

  1. These tacos are nothing like the Puffy tacos that originated in San Antonio, TX. These were made from corm masa, not flour. And the prices are WWWAAAAAAAAAY overpriced.
