Taco Cabana introduces another Mexican favorite by adding all-new chicken and steak fajitas puebla tacos to its menu for a limited time.

The new fajitas puebla tacos are made with marinated steak or all-white meat chicken, topped with a mix of fresh pico de gallo, shredded lettuce, and chopped bacon. For the final touch, Taco Cabana created a creamy avocado sauce made with avocados, jalapenos, sour cream, and chopped cilantro topped off with a hint of fresh lime juice.

"The inspiration for the sauce came from the traditional avocado salsa we saw in restaurants and at street stands on our culinary team's trip to Mexico last year," says Smokey Waters, corporate chef of Taco Cabana. "We added our own spin by using sour cream to give it a smoother texture and a richer flavor."

As part of its ongoing commitment to bring guests the traditional and emerging flavors coming out of Mexico, Taco Cabana's culinary team will visit Mexico again this September to find additional inspiration for its menu.

"This latest offering comes as Taco Cabana continues to infuse its menu with the true flavors of Mexico," says Todd Coerver, chief marketing officer at Taco Cabana. "We wanted to give our guests a new way to enjoy the fresh taste of avocados, which are indigenous to central Mexico and serve as a staple ingredient in traditional Mexican cooking – it's all about infusing flavor into the fun at Taco Cabana."
