Ground turkey now an option at Del Taco

So you made a New Year’s resolution to lose a little weight, but not at the expense of your fast food habit, right?

Well, Del Taco might have just the thing: Turkey!

The chain recently introduced ground turkey as an option for its tacos and CrunchTada.

The seasoned ground turkey has 33 percent less fat compared to the chain’s seasoned ground beef.

A hard-shell turkey taco has just 150 calories.

The fast food chain is offering guests a coupon for a free turkey taco with any purchase. Just click here to get yours.

The chain is also in the midst of a Pinterest contest to give away a $500 American Express gift card. Click here for all the details.
