How To Add A Taco Flavor To Your Chick-Fil-A Sandwich

It's pretty obvious what you're going to find on the menu when you pull up to one of Chick-fil-A's 2,900 restaurants (via ScrapeHero). However, if you happen to have made it this far in your life without dining at the Atlanta-based eatery, chicken — and chicken alone — is at its helm.

Aside from a seasonal fish sandwich that's sold at a select few locations during Lent, Chick-fil-A differs from a number of the other major fast food chains in that it does not offer any protein alternative, such as fish or beef, on its menu. Its loyal clientele hardly seems to mind. Not only have Americans named CFA their favorite fast food restaurant for eight years running, per The Hill, but for several years in a row now, the brand reports that its chicken nuggets and original chicken sandwiches, which feature nothing more than a crispy chicken patty and two pickles on a buttery, toasted bun, have been its two most popular entrees.

That certainly says a lot about Chick-fil-A's chicken, which is also available spicy or grilled. But even if you're someone who regularly mixes up your order when you visit the chain's drive-thru, the menu can start to feel a little tired after a while. Fortunately, there are some creative CFA fans out there who have come up with a few ingenious menu hacks — one of which adds some zesty taco flavor to your meal.

Give your Chick-fil-A sandwich some Mexican flair with tortilla strips and salsa

Despite the expanded field of fast-food chicken sandwiches available these days, Chick-fil-A's original chicken sandwich is still largely considered the best, according to fans. However, even with this prestigious accolade, some CFA fanatics might find themselves looking for something a little different from the six chicken sammies offered by the chain. Well, as they say, "seek, and you will find," and one of the Chick-fil-A hacks we found will give you an entree that's unlike anything you've ever eaten from the chain before. According to The Krazy Coupon Lady, you can easily give your Chick-fil-A sammie some Mexican flair, and all it takes is a few extra requests at the ordering screen.

Start off by ordering a Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich with Pepper Jack cheese — The Daddest suggests requesting it be placed under the chicken patty (you may want to nix the pickles while you're at it, too). Krazy Coupon Lady then instructs us to ask for the chicken patty to be cooked "well done" to make it crispier, in addition to asking for creamy salsa and tortilla strips. Upon receiving your order, crack open that sammie, add the salsa and tortilla strips to the top bun, and voila! You've got yourself a taco chicken burger to quell your hunger pangs. Depending on the season, you may also be able to complete your meal with a side of chicken tortilla soup for even more Mexican restaurant vibes.
