EXCLUSIVE: Chilango on their Low Cal Menu Success and Christmas Specials

The Mexican chain also teased of a new campaign in January with range of dishes below 498 calories.

Chilango released their Christmas menu, making Mexican version of the Christmas meals such as turkey and pig in blankets.

Their Turkey burrito will return this year, consisting of shredded turkey and stuffing of Mexican cranberry salsa and Wensleydale cheese.

“Guests loved the Turkey burrito last year but we wanted to bring more choice to the menu this year and more flavour with our special cranberry salsa adding that Mexican twist,” Sarah Haynes, marketing manager of Chilango, told QSR Media.

Their new Piggy Pot offering are mini sausages wrapped in bacon, while their Loaded Fries features popular baked sweet potato fries with pigs in blanket. Both items are also topped with Mexican cranberry salsa and Wensleydale cheese.

“These meal options are a limited time promotion and only available until Christmas day. The seasonal element means these perform well but our hero product is always the Chilango chicken burrito. Our motivation behind offering a Christmas menu is giving our guest more choice and a seasonal flavour,” Haynes said.

Last June, Chilango have also launched a plant-based menu dubbed at Powered by Plants which is assured to have offerings below 500 calories. They are still looking to further expand this by discussing with their product developers for more vegan friendly meal combinations. 

“We are actually gearing up to launch our January campaign which will feature a range of dishes under 498 calories. These dishes are already Chilango favourites but we wanted to communicate the low calorie options on our menu,” Haynes said.
