Del Taco Introduces Three New Ensaladas #giveaway {ends 10/20} sponsored post

Del Taco just introduced three new Handcrafted Ensaladas! Del Taco gave my family a gift card (and will give one to a lucky Metro Detroit Mommy fan) so we could drop by and try one out.  Priced at $5.49, these salads are not only a good deal, they are a great option for those counting calories (all under 600 calories). Each salad is made to order with a fresh lettuce blend, hand sliced avocado and fresh made tortilla chips, and pico de gallo. 

As a bonus for being a fan, you can download a coupon for a free small drink with the purchase of a salad at {limited time offer}

Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad

I tried the Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad: (pictured above and below) which includes a fresh blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce topped with fresh sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, fresh house-made tortilla chips, spicy jack cheese, seasoned black beans, and freshly grilled marinated chicken. Served with salsa casera and only 510 calories.

The salad was tasty and kept me full for the rest of the evening, which was really surprising.  I really liked the fresh pico de gallo (a bit spicy) and the chicken was tender, juicy and full of flavor.  
Avocados are one of my favorite things and these were perfect.  The only thing missing was a slice of lime... 

Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad

The Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad: (pictured below) features freshly grilled marinated chicken, fresh sliced Hass avocado, crispy hand-chopped bacon, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, and fresh house-made tortilla chips atop a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with new cilantro pepita ranch dressing and only 590 calories. 

Signature Taco Salad

Signature Taco Salad: (pictured below) features seasoned beef, freshly sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, cheddar cheese freshly grated from 40-pound blocks, chopped cilantro, seasoned black beans, fresh house-made tortilla chips, and real sour cream on a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with salsa casera and only 540 calories.

Another great thing about these salads is they are fully customizable! Don't like beans, no problem, Vegan? Ask for no meat! Prefer turkey or beef? Just ask!  Because they are made to order, you can have them make it the way you like it, and it's fresh!

What's up with those bright green containers?  Well, Del Taco's Ensaladas are served in eco-friendly containers made from recycled beverage bottles. Way cool, right?

Del Taco Kid's Meals

So, what about the kids? Del Taco offers four great Kid's Meal options to their younger guests.  The Quesadilla, bean & Cheese Burrito, Taco and Hamburger Meals all come with a child sizes drink and crinkle cut french fries.  

Rosa enjoyed her Hamberger Meal, while Carlyn gobbled up her Quesadilla Meal (pictured below).
