FIRST LOOK — Del Taco Testing Turkey Meat with 33% Less Fat


Looking to cut back a few pounds before the holidays but you can’t just seem to kick your Del Taco habit? Turkey Tacos. Del Taco looks to expand a healthier side to their menu by adding three new turkey items: the Turkey Taco, the Turkey Soft Taco and the Turkey CrunchTada Tostada.

Available from 9 am to 2 am at select locations, the turkey items are said to contain 33 percent less fat than their ground beef counterparts. And unless you knew beforehand you were eating said ground turkey, you can’t tell much of a difference.




If the turkey items gain enough of a fan base, it looks like they’ll find a permanent home on Del Taco’s menu.

    Ground turkey tastes better than ground beef in tacos. Try it. You’ll see.
