Taco Cabana Debuts Two New Menu Items: Steak Asadero Tacos And Dessert Flan

Fast-casual Mexican chain, Taco Cabana, introduces Steak Asadero tacos and dessert Flan (pronounced like “flawn”). The new tacos, with origins from the state of Chihuahua, a region in northwest Mexico, feature the savory flavors of Asadero cheese, while Flan, a well-known Mexican dessert, offers a sweet, classic taste.

“We’re excited to introduce our delicious Steak Asadero tacos to our menu for a limited time,” said Todd Coerver, chief brand officer at Taco Cabana. “This latest menu option along with Flan, were inspired by our trip to Mexico last year and continue to showcase the authentic ingredients and tastes which our guests have come to expect from us.”

The new Steak Asadero tacos are prepared on a handmade six-inch flour tortilla, then filled with premium marinated diced sirloin steak and grilled onions. Chefs then sprinkle freshly grated Asadero cheese, which then melts and creates a flavorful buttery taste.

“Asadero is a mild, semisoft, creamy melting cheese with a tangy finish,” said Diego Galicia, corporate chef at Taco Cabana. “The ingredients we have chosen are very simple, but once married together, the unique and savory flavor will surely delight our guests.”

Now through September 24, 2012, guests can enjoy one Steak Asadero taco for $2.59, as a plate of two tacos with rice, beans, guacamole and two flour tortillas for $6.99, or as a combo meal with two tacos, a side and a 20 oz. drink for $7.19.

Flan is a popular chilled Mexican dessert made with sweetened egg custard and finished with a caramel sauce on top. “Our cooks prepare all of the ingredients each morning and place them in to serving cups,” said Galicia. “Once cooled and set, it will be flipped on to a plate and drizzled with caramel sauce as standard in traditional Mexican cooking.”

Flan rolled out system wide on July 24th for $1.49, joining our freshly made Sopapillas on the dessert menu.
