In 1992, to meet the needs of its expanding cutomer base, El Pollo Loco added several different burrio selections to its menu. The burrito combinations were designed to be assembled with several prepared products the chain had been serving from the start. Here are TSR low-fat versions of four of the most popular burritos. The fat savings are significant, since the beans and rice are now fat-free, and the recipes use fat-free tortillas and fat-free shredded cheddar cheese. You may also want to add a salsa of your choice to these burritos. Try my recipes for El Pollo Loco Spanish rice, pinto beans, and skinless chicken here.
