Del Taco Gets Wet With Two Saucy New Burritos


When we’re rushing to get from one location to another, a burrito usually does the trick to fill us up on our long commutes. If we actually have the time to sit down, we’re gonna indulge ourselves just a tad with a wet burrito. Nothing beats the heartiness of a fat burrito after it’s smothered in a thick sauce.

Del Taco just announced the addition of two new wet burrito meals customers can devour once the cravings set in. The fast food chain is calling them Platos.

The new Chicken Verde Wet Burrito features slow-cooked pinto beans, marinated and grilled chicken, tangy green sauce, and spicy jack cheese wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. The chicken burrito is wrapped in a flour tortilla and topped with more green sauce, jack cheese, and avocado slices.

Steak lovers have the Carne Asada Wet Burrito to enjoy. This beefy burrito is filled with pinto beans, marinated and grilled carne asada steak, a zesty red sauce, and cheddar cheese. It’s wrapped in a flour tortilla and topped with red sauce, cheddar cheese, and sliced avocado.

The Chicken Verde and Carne Asada wet burritos cost $6.49 and $7.49, respectively. You can find the new wet burritos at any Del Taco chain.

Qdoba Does Christmas, Smothers Burritos with Green and Red Sauces


Fast-casual Mexican chain, Qdoba, is offering a new smothered option for their burritos. What smothered means is that your burritos will be stuffed and drenched with sauce. The sauce choices are Tangy Verde, Bold Red Chile or Smokey Chipotle Cream.

If you mix the Verde and Red Chile, you’ll bring together two iconic colors, creating a Christmas burrito.

Along with the sauce smother, the burritos feature the customer’s choice of protein, rice, beans and shredded cheese. Then they’re topped with sour cream, lettuce and pico de gallo.

Burrito options include Vegetarian ($7.80), Grilled Chicken ($7.80), Grilled Beef ($8.40), Shredded Beef ($8.40), Ground Sirloin ($7.80) and Pork ($8.40). Prices may vary depending on location.

Not saying mixing two different spicy sauces is a bad idea, but you may want to avoid any intimate family moments post-Christmas burrito.

Just saying.
