Dinuba, Ca (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
El Monterey introduces Mini Tacos to their snack bag line of classic Mexican food favorites that are perfect for parties, snacks and meals. The varieties include chicken and cheddar cheese and beef and cheddar cheese. The entire line of El Monterey Mexican Snacks is available in recloseable bags that are freezer friendly and convenient.
“In this economy, consumers continue to work hard to stretch their dollar by eating out less and bringing their lunch to work more often,” explains Bryce Ruiz, President & CEO, Ruiz Food Products, Inc. “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 El Monterey Snack Bag line now includes El Monterey Taquitos, Quesadillas, Mini Chimis, Mini Tacos and Tamales attracting consumers through a colorful package design, variety and a long-standing reputation for quality, value and convenience. Products use real cheeses, quality proteins, fresh vegetables and spices that fill fresh flour or corn tortillas made exclusively in the one-site bakery.
