Power Menu Bowl

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.)

Bean Burrito

Need a quick boost of energy without sacrificing flavor or texture? Fuel up on protein and vitamins with Taco Bell's longstanding bean burrito. Beans are full of protein, fiber and antioxidants, which makes the bean burrito a great option for a quick and healthy meal.

Ah, the classic 7-layer burrito. Refried beans, rice, guacamole, shredded lettuce, three-cheese blend, diced tomatoes, reduced-fat sour cream...all rolled into a warm, soft tortilla. And when you order it "Fresco style," you replace the unhealthiest ingredients with pico de gallo—a blend of diced tomatoes, onions and cilantro—ultimately saving you calories and fat.

Soft Taco, Fresco Style

Load up on meaty goodness. Whether you opt for chicken or steak, you'll still be able to enjoy delicious, nutritious Taco Bell tacos without the guilt. Protein, shredded lettuce and pico de gallo (if you get it Fresco style) on a warm, chewy tortilla...sounds and tastes like heaven. Recreate the magic at home with these chiles rellenos grilled chicken tacos or these grilled steak and onion tacos.

We tried Taco Bell’s new vegetarian menu items, and we were blown away

We tried Taco Bell’s new vegetarian menu items, and we were blown away Vegetarians are going to have new fast food menu options beyond the Beyond Burger soon. Taco Bell has announced two new menu items, the fast food industry's first to be certified by the American Vegetarian Association: the Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme and the Black Bean Quesarito. Both dishes are set to debut on Sept. 12. The Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme is a flour tortilla filled with black beans, nacho cheese sauce, iceberg lettuce, reduced-fat sour cream and tomatoes in a tostada shell.

Mini Skillet Bowl

For just $1, you can enjoy a wholesome fast food breakfast. The mini skillet bowl is a simple medley of scrambled eggs, potatoes, pico de gallo and nacho cheese sauce. If you want to save a few calories, simply omit the cheese and add hot sauce for a zesty kick.

If you're seeking healthful Mexican dishes to create at home, we recommend these tasty baked chicken fajitas, these guilt-free veggie bean tacos and these savory steak burritos.

P.S. Did you know Taco Bell's first location was in San Bernadino, California and its original name was Bell's Drive-In and Taco Tia? That's just one of many fascinating facts about the chain.
