Taco Bell


Taco Bell

All of the traditional Taco Bell menu items contain cheese and/or sour cream, rendering their allergen chart pretty well useless. But fortunately, a few years back they started “Fresco Style” a way to order without cheese, sour cream, or sauce.

Also, from the Taco Bell website, “In some restaurants, fish, chicken and potatoes may be prepared in the same oil. Please ask the manager about this practice if you have an allergy to fish or milk.”

No Dairy (Milk) Ingredients (use caution due to cross-contamination potential):

  • Tacos – Fresco Crunchy Taco, Fresco Chicken Soft Taco, Fresco Grilled Steak Soft Taco, and Fresco Beef Soft Taco
  • Burritos – Fresco Chicken Burrito Supreme®, Fresco Steak Burrito Supreme®, Fresco Bean Burrito
  • Sides – Black Beans, Black Beans and Rice, Nacho Chips, and Cilantro Rice
  • Sauces –  Salsa, Salsa Verde, Guacamole, Fire, Green Tomatillo, Hot, Mild, Pizza, and Red
  • Dessert – Cinnamon Twists

  1. You can easily order almost anything without dairy, provided you know what is in it. The kids working there have no idea, but I have always had a positive experience once I explain my allergy. I check ingredients beforehand and know what to tell them to leave out. They have always been very diligent and usually walk back to the prep line to be sure its prepared right.

    Also, watch out for the avacado ranch dressing, it isn’t listed on the cashier’s screen for every item that actually contains it. They usually have the two separate so you can still get the yummy avacado. Anything that lists “ranch dressing” is on their keyboard as “avacado ranch”, it really helps them if you know that.

    I’ve been to several locations across the south and always felt safe with the food I received.
