Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurants today announced the company-wide introduction of its new “Tapas and Small Bites” menu category featuring six new, smaller portioned menu items starting at just $2.49.

“Abuelo’s is always looking to enhance the creativity of our menu to better deliver what today’s savvy consumer is seeking – variety, flavor and value,” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. ”We are excited to introduce these new smaller “tastes” which are big in flavor, but small in price. Chef Luis has once again created a delicious line up of exciting new flavors.”

Abuelo’s new “Tapas and Small Bites” range from $2.49 to $6.49 and include:

  •     Jalapeño Cheese Fritters – Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. Deliciously delicate hand-breaded fritters, oozing with minced jalapeño and melted cheese. Served with ranch dressing.
  •     Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms – Fresh, marinated mushrooms filled with Abuelo’s creamy signature spinach casserole.
  •     Sonoran Green Chile Cheese Crisp – Crispy, baked flour tortilla covered with melted cheese and diced Poblano and Anaheim chiles.
  •     Mini Shrimp Cocktail – A spicy, individual-sized Mexican shrimp cocktail, layered over our cool, refreshing avocado cream. Served with crispy flour tortilla chips.
  •     Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Shrimp – Three wood-grilled, bacon-wrapped succulent shrimp stuffed with fresh jalapeño and blended cheeses.
  •     Chicken and Spinach Mini Chimis – Two small chimichangas stuffed with tender, spicy chicken, spinach and cheese. Served with honey lime ancho cilantro sauce.
“Our new ‘Tapas and Small Bites’ are great for mixing, matching and sharing with friends and family – either as individual appetizers or as additions to a favorite entrée,” added Lin. “We say that they are perfectly sized, perfectly priced and packed with flavor.”
