Torchy’s Tacos Unveils the South Pole Taco

If you ask us, it’s always a good time for tacos. So naturally, we’re intrigued by the latest Taco of the Month from Torchy’s Tacos: the South Pole taco. This chef-inspired taco consists of braised and shredded lamb topped with French-fried onions, a cranberry-habanero jam, fresh avocado, Diablo Hot Sauce, cojita cheese, cilantro and lime. The all-natural lamb is sourced by Superior Farms™.

Megan Wortman of the American Lamb Board, a group dedicated to educating customers about the protein, said via press release: “Lamb is making its way more and more onto menus. We’re excited about reaching new customers with Torchy’s and continuing the advocacy of this flavorful, nutrient-rich product.”

Michael Rypka, VP of Culinary and Marketing at Torchy’s, reserves no hesitation for his customers. He said in the release: “This taco is one of our most culinary- inspired items. It’s part fancy, part festive, but all Torchy’s. Our fans are going to love it.”

The company says that the name, the South Pole, plays off of the dichotomy of Torchy’s food itself – an equal, but grittier call out to the holiday season.
