Mexican QSR adds Quesadilla, Crunchy Tacos, Burrito
El Pollo Loco rolled out Shredded Beef Birria Quesadilla, Shredded Beef Birria Crunchy Tacos and Shredded Beef Birria Burrito. The new items are part of the Costa Mesa, Calif.-based chain’s limited-time Mexican Shredded Beef Birria rollout.
Birria has been trending on menus over the past couple of years. The recipe of traditional beef or goat stew with spices has been passed down through generations, noted the Mexican QSR chain.
The three new entrees of Mexican Shredded Beef Birria come with a birria consomé. Customers can use the slow-simmered, savory beef broth, infused with garlic, chili, and lime for dipping.
The El Pollo Loco Shredded Beef Birria Stuffed Quesadilla features shredded beef birria, melty cheese, fresh avocado, chopped onions, and cilantro. Shredded Beef Birria Burrito comes filled with shredded beef birria, cheese, sour cream, rice, beans, cabbage, chopped onions, and cilantro.
A plate of Shredded Beef Birria Crunchy Tacos includes tacos with shredded beef birria, cheese, chopped onion, and cilantro.
“When we develop new recipes at El Pollo Loco, we always consider the rich flavor profiles of our Mexican roots and go through countless rounds of testing so we can get each product just right,” says Heather Gardea, vice president of research and development at El Pollo Loco. “Our Mexican Shredded Beef Birria is a proud achievement that takes our commitment to quality and deliciousness to a new level.”
El Pollo Loco Shredded Beef Birria Quesadilla, Shredded Beef Birria Crunchy Tacos and Shredded Beef Birria Burrito are available systemwide through June 1.
