El Pollo Loco Adds Chicken Tamale, Chicken Pozole Verde And Mexican Hot Chocolate


El Pollo Loco shakes up their menu with the introduction of new Chicken Pozole Verde and Mexican Hot Chocolate. The chain has also brought back its popular Chicken Tamales for the holiday season, and just like last year, they’re available a la carte and as part of the new Chicken Tamale Bowls, which we covered earlier.

The Chicken Tamale features tender masa dough stuffed with chicken and red chile sauce, then wrapped in a corn husk and topped with queso fresco and cilantro.

Chicken Pozole Verde is a traditional Mexican soup that consists of chicken, tomatillo, serrano chile, Anaheim chile, garlic, onion, cilantro, and hominy, finished with lime, cabbage, and cilantro.

The new Mexican Hot Chocolate features Abuelita Hot Chocolate topped with real whipped cream topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

All three items are available now at participating El Pollo Loco restaurants nationwide for a limited time. Prices may vary.
