With many consumers making an effort to eat healthier in 2017, El Pollo Loco has debuted a range of nutritious, low-calorie dishes such as Lettuce Tacos and Open-Faced Tostadas. Despite being a lighter option, each dish boasts enough delicious flavor and fresh ingredients to keep customers satisfied.

Designed specifically for its Under-500 Calories menu, El Pollo Loco's Lettuce Tacos consists of traditional taco ingredients such as flame-grilled chicken and cotija cheese served inside two soft lettuce cups. Other additions to the new menu include the Skinny Fajita Quesadilla, which clocks in at 470 calories and the Open-Faced Tostadas, which clock in at exactly 500 calories.

By offering low-calories dishes that don't sacrifice flavor, El Pollo Loco is making its menu more appealing to health-conscious consumers who might normally eat at other chains.
