US-based restaurant chain El Pollo Loco has unveiled a new fire-grilled chicken nachos dish in three flavour combinations.

The menu item features salted tortilla chips, citrus-marinated and slow-grilled chicken, queso blanco and guacamole.

The three flavour options are Double Chicken Nachos, Shredded Chicken Nachos and Loco Chicken Nachos.

Double Chicken Nachos is made using a double portion of fire-grilled chicken, guacamole, sour cream, queso blanco, pickled jalapenos, pinto beans, pico de gallo and salted tortilla chips.

Shredded Chicken Nachos features shredded ranchero chicken, guacamole, sour cream, queso blanco, pinto beans, pico de gallo and salted tortilla chips.

“Our new fire-grilled chicken nachos are made with sea-salted chips prepared in-restaurant each day.”

Loco Chicken Nachos is a blend of fire-grilled chicken, guacamole, corn, queso blanco, cilantro sauce, fried serrano pepper and salted tortilla chips.

El Pollo Loco research and development (R&D) vice-president and executive chef Heather Gardea said: “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 flavour in every crunchy layer.

“We carefully selected each ingredient to create one-of-a-kind nachos that only could come from El Pollo Loco and a mealtime favourite that can be enjoyed in front of the TV on football Sunday or at the table with family and friends.”
