Keto-Friendly Fast Food Options That Won’t Ruin Your Diet
Given that El Pollo Loco translates to “crazy chicken,” it’s no surprise that this fast food chain with more than 480 locations in six states – Arizona, California, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas and Utah – is known in particular for its chicken dishes (via Forbes). But when it comes to the keto diet, El Pollo Loco offers a unique menu item: the world’s first Keto Burrito.
According to Site of El Pollo Loco, this burrito is Keto certified. This means that the product must meet certain specifications regarding things like its carb content and ingredients (via Certified Keto). But just because certain foods aren’t allowed on the keto diet doesn’t mean the world’s first Keto Burrito doesn’t have a variety of ingredients. Made from a special keto-OK tortilla, El Pollo Loco’s keto burrito is filled with ground chicken, sliced avocado, cotija cheese, red cabbage, organic super veggies, pico de gallo salsa and creamy cilantro vinaigrette. And if any of these foods aren’t for you, you can always customize your burrito to, for example, have no red cabbage or avocado.
In addition to the world’s first Keto Burrito, El Pollo Loco also offers the Double Keto Chicken Avocado Salad on its Pollo Fit menu. Like the keto burrito, this salad comes with pico de gallo salsa, avocados, cotija cheese, and organic super greens, along with lettuce and corn. And, again, it’s customizable, so you can, for example, add a creamy cilantro vinaigrette.
