This spicy chain tries to lure us in for a fourth meal, late-night snacks and over-the-top tacos. Stay far, far away from any seasonal specialty--especially if it's served in an edible tortilla bowl! Thankfully, the Taco Bell menu has some healthier options that won't have you running for the border.
Bypass the regular menu and go for the Fresco Menu, which replaces cheese and/or sauce with a zesty fiesta salsa made of diced tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. All items on the Fresco Menu have 330 calories or fewer with no more than 8 g of fat. Here are some of the best Fresco options to consider:
Ask for extra fresco salsa or extra lettuce to boost the nutrition of your meal.
Add side items to a basic taco or Fresco Menu item to build a more complete meal. The Pintos and Cheese (160 calories, 6 g fat, 670 mg sodium) and Mexican Rice (100 calories, 3 g fat, 790 mg sodium) are great choices.
For added flavor without the fat, use the various hot sauces instead of sour cream, cheese sauce or other creamy toppings.
