DINUBA, CALIF. — El Monterey has introduced mini tacos to its snack bag line of Mexican food.

“In this economy, consumers continue to work hard to stretch their dollar by eating out less and bringing their lunch to work more often,” said Bryce Ruiz, president and chief executive officer. “And while they look for less expensive food options, they do not wish to trade off on quality, taste or variety. As a result, consumers have turned to frozen snacks as inexpensive at-home meal options.”

The tacos come in chicken and cheddar cheese and beef and cheddar cheese varieties. The El Monterey Snack Bag line now has taquitos, quesadillas, mini chimis, mini tacos and tamales.
