My love affair with El Pollo Loco’s Cheesecake Chimichanga #ad

I am in love with the Cheesecake Chimichangas from El Pollo Loco.

What’s not to love? It’s cheesecake and chocolate wrapped in a deep-fried flour tortilla, and covered in powdered sugar. Can you imagine anything better? Trust me, they’re ooey gooey deep-fried goodness.

It’s a new love, something that’s come up over the past few months. And I’m trying to convert everyone to my point of view. So far I’ve succeeded in bringing my family along into my adoration. I’ve bought some and brought them to my family to taste and they agree with me. So much so, that my sister had me text her the address of the Sugar Land location recently because she wanted to go get some for herself.

El Pollo Loco sells them in individual servings. Did I mention that they’re just 380 calories per serving? (According to their website.) It’s best if you eat them while they’re hot, but I do recommend that you let them cool down a little bit.

Of course, they do have great-tasting citrus-marinated fire-grilled chicken. It’s part of a healthy options menu offered at El Pollo Loco. The chicken is slow-grilled for about an hour, then chopped into pieces to be sold as part of individual entrees or family meals. The meals include warm flour or corn tortillas and a choice of sides.

There are a lot of options on the menu in addition to the fire-grilled chicken: salads, burritos, enchiladas, and quesadillas are just a few of them. There’s even under-500 calorie options: soup, enchiladas, tacos, salads, and tostadas.

El Pollo Loco has a location open at 4528 Highway 6 and Austin Parkway in Sugar Land. They will open four additional Houston-area restaurants over the next several months in the following locations:

  • Copperfield – Highway 6 & West Rd., now open
  • Katy – S. Mason Rd. & Provincial Blvd., opening late 2014
  • Humble – FM 1960 & Whitaker Rd., opening 2015
  • Spring – Kuykendahl & Springbrook Garden Lane, opening 2015
