The crazy chicken chain is back at it with a new line of quesadillas that look a hell of a lot like Taco Bell’s Crunchwraps.
After dropping “Overstuffed Quesadillas” for a limited time last year, El Pollo Loco brought them back Wednesday. Don’t let the shape fool you: while the Overstuffed Quesadillas look like Taco Bell’s iconic Crunchwrap on the outside, the insides couldn’t be more different.

Whereas Taco Bell crams ordinary Southwest chain taco fillings into their Crunchwrap, each of El Pollo Loco’s Overstuffed Quesadillas contains their signature flame-grilled chicken, cheese, a variety of vegetables, salsas, and additional ingredients that help make up four different wrapped creations.
Those four new flavors are as follows:
Chicken Cheddar Bacon, with caramelized onions and smoked Cheddar cheese
Southwest Chicken Avocado
Chicken Nacho, with pickled jalapenos and a tostada shell inside
Chicken Fajita Avocado
Each one sells for just over six bucks, making it a hefty yet portable on-the-go meal. The new Overstuffed Quesadillas are a limited-time offering, and while there’s no confirmed date as to when they’ll disappear, I’d go check these new wraps out sooner rather than later.
