Featuring crispy all-white meat chicken tenders topped with shredded lettuce and all-natural Cheddar cheese, the bold and craveworthy item is drizzled with Taco John’s signature Queso Blanco — made with three cheeses, red peppers, jalapeños and smoky Hatch chiles — and wrapped in a warm, soft flour tortilla for a match made in heaven.

When added to our delicious crispy all-white meat chicken tenders … mmm, could it be too good? We’ll let you be the judge!”
