Del Taco Debuts Two New Craveable Burritos

LAKE FOREST, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - Today Del Taco is adding two new burritos to its popular menu with the introduction of the 59¢ Chipotle Value Bean & Cheese Burrito and the Nacho Crunch Burrito. Both burritos reinforce the chain's reputation as the go-to place for the best tasting burritos at a great price.

"These days, when folks go out for food, they're looking for deals," said John Cappasola, Del Taco's Chief Brand Officer. "And while they know they can get a great fast food deal at just about anywhere, real fans know where to go for the highest quality food at the best price. Del Taco cannot be beat for value and taste."

The 59¢ Chipotle Value Bean & Cheese Burrito delivers the smoked chili pepper flavor distinctive to chipotle and includes slow cooked beans made from scratch, freshly grated cheddar cheese and Del Taco's new, creamy chipotle sauce all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

The Nacho Crunch Burrito is made with seasoned beef, slow-cooked beans, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream and tortilla chips wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. Del Taco is also offering a Nacho Crunch Burrito Meal for $5 that includes the new burrito, two regular tacos, small fries and a small drink.

"The 59¢ Chipotle Value Bean & Cheese Burrito and Nacho Crunch Burrito prove once again: All burritos are not created equal," Cappasola said. "Ours are craveable."
