The Power Menu at Taco Bell consists of items that are packed with protein, giving you the flavorful boost you need to get through the day. Here's the description according to the Taco Bell online menu: "Your choice of grilled chicken or steak, guacamole, reduced-fat sour cream, freshly prepared pico de gallo, seasoned black beans, crisp lettuce and seasoned rice, packed into a seriously powerful bowl." (To make it vegetarian, you can sub meat for a double scoop of black beans.)
