Vegan Options at Taco Bell

Vegan Options at Taco Bell

The vegan options at Taco Bell are probably our #1 go-to on road trips. What exit we’re going to stop and get gas at is usually dictated by if it has a Taco Bell. With the addition of being able to order something “fresco style”, you are staying in the Taco Bell worker’s wheelhouse which tends to lead to more correct orders. Bean Burritos “fresco style” with Fire or Mild sauce is our most ordered option and Cinnamon Twists are always a nice little bonus. Next time you need a quick bite on a road trip, or anytime really, try out the vegan options at Taco Bell.

The 101 On Ordering Vegan at Taco Bell.

    1. Order exactly how we have said to do it below. We have included all ingredients listed with exactly which to eliminate. -OR-
    2. If you know the item is already vegetarian, you can ask for it to be made “fresco style.” This takes out any dairy but ALSO guacamole and replaces them with pico de gallo.
    3. Ordering online is available at most locations & makes it super easy to ensure you are ordering & subbing ingredients correctly.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: Bean Burritos “Fresco Style”. To be very specific, 3 Bean Burritos “Fresco Style” with Fire Sauce. As mentioned above, this is probably my favorite road trip quick stop meal. Pro Tip – Don’t try to open up the burrito to add the sauce, just squeeze out a bit onto the end of each bite. Perfection!

Jen’s Pick: Bean Burrito “Fresco Style,” with 2 packets of Mild Sauce/burrito will always be my go-to with Cinnamon Twists. I do love a tostada though too!
