    The new line of Fire-Grilled Chicken Nachos includes three different flavor combinations.

    El Pollo Loco launched all new Fire-Grilled Chicken Nachos available in three different flavor combinations—Double Chicken Nachos, Shredded Chicken Nachos, and Loco Chicken Nachos.

    Made with fresh ingredients and handcrafted to order, the new Fire-Grilled Chicken Nachos are delicious layers of tortilla chips now with sea salt and topped with El Pollo Loco’s signature citrus-marinated and slow-grilled chicken, creamy queso blanco and handmade guacamole. 

    “As we head into the New Year, families are craving new options that are fresh, tasty and made with high-quality ingredients. This is why our new Fire-Grilled Chicken Nachos are made with sea-salted chips prepared in-restaurant each day and a variety of flavor in every crunchy layer,” says Heather Gardea, vice president of research and development and executive chef at El Pollo Loco. “We carefully selected each ingredient to create one-of-a-kind nachos that only could come from El Pollo Loco and a mealtime favorite that can be enjoyed in front of the TV on football Sunday or at the table with family and friends.”

    The new line of Fire-Grilled Chicken Nachos includes the following:

    • Double Chicken Nachos: A double portion of fire-grilled chicken, handmade guacamole, sour cream, queso blanco, pickled jalapenos, pinto beans, fresh pico de gallo, tortilla chips with sea salt
