Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, announced a new partnership with CAULIPOWER, a company that is on a mission to reinvent your favorite foods, one healthy meal hack at a time. The two companies are teaming up to offer a new superfood sensation: Mexican dishes at Abuelo’s made with CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas.

“Healthy eating used to mean depriving yourself of certain foods, but people are taking a more sophisticated approach to nutrition now and focusing on fueling their bodies with the right ingredients,” says Abuelo’s president Bob Lin. “That’s why we’re so excited to work with CAULIPOWER to offer Abuelo’s guests a delicious new superfood alternative.”

As part of both companies’ ongoing commitment to providing tasty and healthy alternatives, Abuelo’s locations nationwide now offer two great new enchilada dishes that are made with CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas. Naturally gluten-free, a good source of fiber, vegan, non-GMO and containing no preservatives, CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas are a superfood “meal hack” that allow customers to meet nutritional goals while eating their favorite Mexican-inspired foods.

Available now on the Abuelo’s menu, CAULIPOWER Roasted Chicken & Veggie Enchiladas and CAULIPOWER Roasted Veggie Enchiladas feature two enchiladas, one topped with zesty Ranchera sauce and the other with rich Salsa de Crema. Both of these new enchilada dishes are served with a superfood vegetable medley, fresh avocado slices and a choice of authentic cilantro lime rice or black beans.

“Abuelo’s and CAULIPOWER both offer innovative alternatives to people who want to eat healthier while still enjoying their favorite foods, which makes our partnership a great fit,” says Julie Lim, CAULIPOWER Executive VP, Foodservice. “We’re thrilled to partner with Abuelo’s to deliver a tastier healthy alternative to traditional tortillas at Abuelo’s locations nationwide.”

In addition to the two new enchilada dishes featuring CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas, Abuelo’s guests can also order this healthier take on traditional tortillas as an upgrade to any enchiladas or fajitas dish for just $2 extra. It’s a superfood alternative that can help Abuelo’s guests keep their “healthier eating” New Year’s resolutions on track — without compromising on the savory, great-tasting Mexican cuisine they love.
