Del Taco Carnitas

Del Taco Carnitas


This is a sponsored post. I was provided with a Gift Card to try out Del Taco’s new menu items. Opinions are my own.


Starting today (June 26th) and for a limited time, Del Taco is bringing back Shredded Pork Carnitas Menu items :)

To make their flavorful pork carnitas, Del Taco slow-braises the pork in small batch kettles — a typical cooking method of a traditional Mexican kitchen.

Menu items include Carnitas Taco al Carbon, Carnitas Combo Burrito and new this summer – Carnitas Loaded Fries. There’s also hidden “off-menu” items including the Macho Carnitas Burrito, Primo Carnitas Burrito and Carnitas Macho Nachos — all you need to do is ask!


The Carnitas Combo Burrito features slow cooked beans, tender braised pork, grated cheddar cheese and green sauce wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. The Carnitas Taco al Carbon features shredded pork, California Chili sauce, diced onions and chopped cilantro wrapped in two warm corn tortillas. Order the off menu Carnitas Macho Nachos for fresh tortilla chips, loaded with slow-cooked beans, carnitas, nacho cheese sauce, diced tomatoes, sour cream and topped with sliced jalapeno peppers.

Here’s a printable coupon for a FREE Carnitas Taco al Carbon with any purchase — great for a inexpensive quick snack after a day spent soaking up the sun at the beach, coaching little league, or shuttling the family around to various activities.

Personally, when I’m offered a choice of fillings, I’ll go with carnitas over beef or chicken every time — and I know I see the Carnitas Loaded fries in my future ;)
