Taco Del Mar Brings the Heat with its Blazing Scorpion Chicken Flavored with TABASCO® Scorpion Sauce

The Mexican fast-casual brand adds this hot new item to menus for a limited time

Now offering spice like no other, fast-casual brand Taco Del Mar is bringing the heat to its restaurants across the U.S. and Canada this fall with a new protein choice – Blazing Scorpion Chicken flavored with TABASCO® Scorpion Sauce – which can be added to any entrée or taco.

Made with tender pulled chicken flavored with TABASCO® Scorpion Sauce, the brand’s hottest, it’s the perfect addition of heat and flavor for adventurous guests looking for a little more excitement in their meals.

Taco Del Mar champions a variety of tacos and burritos with varying spice levels, from its refreshing Rippin’ Fish Tacos to this latest menu addition, welcoming all to the table no matter their spice love or tolerance. Blazing Scorpion Chicken is the restaurant’s hottest offering to date, promising intensity without compromising flavor.

“We’ve offered spicy options at Taco Del Mar in previous years, but our Blazing Scorpion Chicken is next level, offering a truly spicy way to add flavorful heat to our already incredible menu lineup,” said Mike Gieseman, Vice President of Culinary and Innovation. “Chicken is the most selected protein option and we wanted to add an unexpected flair that packs a spicy – and flavorful – punch but doesn’t scorch your mouth.”

Taco Del Mar’s Blazing Scorpion Chicken flavored with TABASCO® Scorpion Sauce is available October 17 at participating U.S. and Canada locations while supplies last. Guests can get their hands on a Blazing Scorpion Chicken entrée starting at around $9 in the U.S. and $10 in Canada; menu prices may vary.
