Mild Sauce

Another mild sauce makes its way to the market, and it’s absolutely fantastic. Del Taco’s mild sauce is tailored for those who are brand new to the fiery world of hot sauces. The sauce is crafted with a blend of tomatoes, onions, garlic, chili peppers, cumin, and oregano. I love that the sauce’s mild flavor, subtly sweet and smoky, make for perfect companions for chicken strips, burritos, and plain rice.    


Now, this may seem like a simple ketchup sauce at first, but it’s actually a refreshing blend of fresh diced tomatoes, onions, and a special mix of spices. This conjures a burst of flavor with every bite. It also has a 100% vegan composition, perfect for tacos! You can even enjoy it with French fries, chicken tenders, wings, or sandwiches, packing a zesty and savory kick to every single bite.

Del Scorcho – Medium Sauce

Del Taco’s medium sauce isn’t the same as other restaurant sauces. It’s a fiery and flavorful condiment packed with jalapenos, chili powder, chipotle peppers, and a blend of other spices. The sauce has a smoky, spicy, and slightly sweet taste that’s just perfect when drizzled over tacos, burritos, quesadillas, or even nachos. A small amount of this sauce goes a long way, so it’s best to start with a conservative application and adjust to taste.

Del Inferno – Spicy Hot Sauce

If you thought their medium sauce was hot, then you’re in for a surprise. Del Taco’s spicy hot sauce is straight from the inferno. It’s chocked full of habaneros and other spices to give it a powerful flavor. It’s actually somewhat reminiscent of Tabasco sauce but with a touch more saltiness. A delicious combo for all cuts of beef while also infusing tacos and burritos with a sensational kick.

Salsa Sauce

This is a fantastic classic Salsa sauce from Del Taco you just need to try. It’s not your typical salsa. This salsa combines fresh tomatoes with onions, green onion, cilantro, garlic, chili powder, and a hint of sugar to achieve a perfectly balanced and nuanced flavor profile. I enjoy it on all my nachos, tacos, and even fried chicken tenders.

Habanero Sauce

Conjured with the fiery heat of habanero peppers and other tantalizing spices is the Del Taco Habanero sauce. It offers an intense and smoky flavor with subtle hints of garlic, onion, and lime juice. This flavor pairs exceptionally well with chicken dishes and complements beef and seafood dishes, enhancing their taste with its robust and spicy notes.

Del Taco Savory Secret Sauce

Shhhh, it’s Del Taco’s savory secret sauce! Not much is known about this sauce except it’s a twist on traditional mayonnaise but with a thicker egg yolk base. It boasts a creamy texture, subtle sweetness, and a hint of tanginess that pairs perfectly with chicken burritos and other chicken menu items. It also pairs well with fish and shrimp tacos.

Red Sauce

This red sauce is a tangy and tomatoey delight infused with subtle hints of garlic, onion, cumin, paprika, and oregano. It has a thinner consistency, similar to ketchup, with a splash of bell pepper for added heat. Even the smoky notes from the cumin and paprika beautifully complement the other flavors. It’s a delicious combo that pairs exceptionally well with bean dishes, adding a zesty and flavorful touch.  

Guacamole Sauce

What sauces does Del Taco have that put them up among the best Mexican fusion restaurants? The delicious Del Taco Guacamole can answer that. It’s a delicious combination of avocados, tomatoes, cilantro, onions, jalapenos, and lime juice. With its creamy texture and a hint of spiciness, it serves as the perfect combo for tacos and nachos. I also love that there’s a little texture to it, thanks to the bits of the ingredients.

Ranch Sauce

I mean, if a restaurant doesn’t have ranch sauce, then what are they doing? Del Taco’s has hit the nail on the head with this ranch sauce. It’s a creamy sauce crafted from mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk. It perfectly complements their Crispy Chicken & Fries Box, Crispy Chicken Taco, and Crispy Chicken Guac’d Up Taco. But we can all agree it goes hand in hand as a salad dressing. You can even use it when reheating chicken wings for that nice splash of flavor.

Chipotle Sauce

You can’t go wrong with a good chipotle sauce, and Del Taco proved just that. This sauce is creamy, smoky, and tangy, with an intense flavor and aroma. It’s made with a blend of mayo, adobo, chili peppers, tomatoes, and spices. A fusion that’s fantastic as a spicy sauce for chicken, soups, and stews. Even alongside tacos, burritos, or enchiladas, or as a dipping sauce for chips and salsa, it proves its delicious flavor.

Green Sauce

A jalapenos sauce jam-packed with flavor. That’s what this sauce is. With ingredients like garlic, onion, cilantro, tomatillo, and lime juice, it has the tanginess of the lime juice perfectly balanced by the other flavors. This combo of flavor and ingredients makes it best for drizzling over tacos and burritos or used as a dipping sauce for cheesy items. Many Reddit reviewers rave about the green sauce, and now? It’s not hard to see why.

Queso Dip Sauce

This classic Mexican cheese dip from Del Taco is absolutely delicious. It uses a mix of sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheeses to create a rich and creamy indulgence. The sauce is essential when it comes to using it as a dipping sauce for tortilla chips or serving as a sauce for tacos and burritos. You’d probably notice a slightly watery texture on top, but this thickens as you dig deeper. The occasional diced chunks of jalapeno also add that pleasant touch of heat.

Burger Sauce

A burger sauce is a necessity in any sauce arsenal, and with Del Taco’s Burger sauce, you won’t go wrong. Much like McDonald’s sauces, this sauce is both savory and slightly sweet with flashes of smokiness. A classic sauce for a classic cheeseburger combo. But you can even use it for fries or as a dipping sauce for nachos. While it delivers a satisfying blend of sweet, salty, and sour notes, it does lack the depth of flavor that fresh ingredient versions could provide.
