Have you ever noticed that many ingredients of delicious Tex-Mex dishes happen to be vegan? The beans, potatoes, tortillas, guacamole, and rice at Taco Bell are all animal-free—so just about anything can be made vegan. ? The easiest way to order vegan at the chain is to substitute beans for meat (at no extra charge) and to ask for your item “fresco style”—which replaces the cheese and sour cream with some tasty pico de gallo.
Fast food isn’t exactly the healthiest food, but if you and your family need a quick meal in between school and your after-school activities, Taco Bell is a great place to stop—because ordering vegan there is super-easy!
And there’s even more exciting news: Later this year, Taco Bell will be releasing a vegan-friendly menu that will feature exciting new options. So keep an eye out!
