Rubio’s Restaurants Unveils Enchilada Entrees

Rubio’s Restaurants, the brand known for its seafood entrees, is welcoming new chef-crafted Enchilada Plates to its menu. Created by Rubio’s cofounder, Ralph Rubio, and Rubio’s team of chefs, the product line includes sustainable Pan-Seared Shrimp Enchiladas with verde sauce, Grilled Chicken Enchiladas with fire-roasted sauce, and Enchiladas Especial featuring a combination of one pan-seared shrimp enchilada and one grilled chicken enchilada.

The new enchilada plates come complete with two enchiladas made with a blend of three melted cheeses all wrapped in toasted corn tortillas and topped with salsa fresca and a drizzle of Rubio’s signature white sauce. The plates are served with a side of black beans and citrus rice flavored with lemongrass and lime juice. The tangy verde enchilada sauce pairs with the Shrimp Enchiladas. This sauce is made with a blend of tomatillos, poblano, and serrano peppers and finished with garlic, cilantro, and charred jalapenos. The fire-roasted enchilada sauce is featured on the Chicken Enchiladas and brings together the kick of chile peppers with cumin, tomato, garlic, and a hint of onion.

“As our brand continues to evolve, so does our menu,” says Ralph Rubio, founder of Rubio’s. “Our new items provide guests with a savory twist on traditional enchilada offerings.  We invite guests to come in and try these dishes for dinner paired with one of our craft beer options or sangria.”
