Just in time for your New Year’s resolutions, Del Taco added lean ground turkey to its menu Thursday. Customers can now order turkey tacos and turkey CrunchTada tostadas (Del Taco’s version of a taco pizza).

It is the first Mexican fast-food chain to offer turkey as a protein option and is advertising that the 150-calorie tacos contain 33% less fat than the beef version of the dish.

The tacos come with seasoned ground turkey on a crunchy corn or flour tortilla, cheddar cheese, lettuce and pico de gallo.

The turkey tacos are priced individually at $1.29, or available in a turkey taco meal with two tacos, chips and a drink for $5. The taco meal, when paired with a diet drink, is 430 calories, according to a company statement.


You can score a free taco with any purchase if you “like” Del Taco on Facebook and get a coupon.
