The Chickenless Pollo Taco is made with plant-based protein, slow simmered in a sauce of fire roasted peppers, onions and tomatoes, and topped with queso fresco, lettuce, and fresh avocado. It’s wrapped in a new corn and flour artisan tortilla.
    • The World’s First Keto Taco: Better-for-you food without sacrificing flavor. This Keto Certified Taco has tender pieces of fire-grilled chicken, jack cheese, handmade pico and ripe avocado nestled into a keto friendly tortilla and finished with creamy cilantro dressing.
