Here are 20 Ways To Order Vegan At Taco Bell

So, you’re vegan? Tambien. ???? My whole life I grew up looking forward to all the rice and beans: my mom’s arroz con gandules alongside Taco Bell’s $1.50 rice and beans. Yes, I did smuggle friends out of school in the trunk of my car so that we could get Taco Bell (true story).

Vegan friends, the same escapades don’t have to escape you. Taco Bell is probably the most vegan-friendly fast food chain, so live all your más for cheap.

1. Note the lack of salad in this picture.

I mean, yes, you can order vegan salad at Taco Bell, but you can also feast like you’ve become accustomed to. Already, tengo hambre.

2. Crunchwrap Supreme

Or, like your mama calls it, “The E’spaceship.” Just ask them to remove the beef, sour cream and nacho cheese and add black beans, guac, and potatoes if you’ve got the hambre like I do.

3. Power Menu Veggie Burrito

This bad boy already comes with black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole and romaine lettuce. All you have to do is ask for no cheese, sour cream, or avocado ranch sauce. Try to ask for pinto beans, too, and let us know if they let you. 😉

4. The 7-Layer Burrito

Order it without sour cream, rice, and cheese, and be bold and add potatoes and pico de gallo. Dale, you can order red sauce, too. ????

5. Double Decker Taco Supreme

Someone please order this already and send us a pic to show the world. Get yourself a soft taco protecting a hard shell and stuff it with all the veggies.

Remove: Beef, cheese, sour cream.

Add: Beans & guacamole.

6. Spicy Tostada

I mean, guys. All you have to do is ask for no cheese or chipotle sauce.

Pro tip: Bring this home and top it with Follow Your Heart shredded cheese and pop it back in the oven.

7. Hard Shell Taco

You’re getting the hang of this, huh? Sub beans for beef and no cheese. Ask for pico de gallo and guac, and prepare yourself for this next hack: potatoes.

8. And no, we don’t mean some janky thing like this.

Apparently, this secret hack got out and some Tweeter brought their novia enojada this when she asked for a Taco Bell burrito with potatoes. Boys. ????

9. Spicy Potato Tacos

We mean THESE beauties. Just order it without cheese and sour cream.

Life Hack: be a boss and BYO-Vegan-Sour-Cream. Like, why aren’t you already carrying that around?

10.  Tacos Frescos

You can order almost anything vegan at Taco Bell by ordering it “Fresco Style.” That just means they’ll remove any dairy, mayonnaise and guacamole and replace it with pico de gallo.

Then, tell them you want guac, because who doesn’t want guac, and who tf wants cow milk these days?

11. The Veggie Power Menu Bowl

A.K.A. “poor man’s Chipotle,” you can order her without cheese, sour cream or avocado ranch and it already comes with guac!

You ???? don’t ???? have ???? to ???? pay ???? extra. ????

12. Taco Salad

Memorize this: “Can I please have the Taco Salad, sub beans for beef, fresco style, plus potatoes, guacamole and red sauce?”

You’ll be saying it often, because this is the only kind of salad I’ll ever have.

13. Baja Blast Freeze

Did you know that many chemicals in our favorite soft drinks are vegan? #Humane #UnhealthyVegan

14. Black Beans & Rice

She’s already vegan, obvi! You don’t have to call yourself out for this one. Just drop the $1.50 and enjoy.

15. Chips, Guac & Salsa

They’re all vegan, because life wouldn’t be worth living if they weren’t, am I right? OK, jk, life is great. Have you been to Chipotle yet?

16. Though not all hot sauces are kind to animals.

CREDIT: @tacobell / Instagram

Naturally, Fire, the best sauce, is (for unknown reasons) not vegan. You may continue hoarding all the hot, mild and verde packets though. 😛

17. The Bean Burrito

Remember this image. This is how Taco Bell portrays it’s bean burrito, fresco style.

Also, remember to ask for no cheese and feel free to ask to sub for rice or potatoes (no charge)!

18. What an actual Bean + Potato Burrito looks like:

Yeah, it doesn’t look great, but you know you’re deeply satisfied eating all that flour tortilla. Plus, it’s only $1 so you get what you pay for and all that.

19. The Red Sauce is key though, guys.

CREDIT: @sweetganjababi / Twitter

Ask for red sauce in everrrrything. It’s essentially the flavor of Taco Bell, and whatever you miss from your old meat-based menu, will taste the same without the meat. Because you’re just tasting and lusting for the sauce. Trust.

20. Cinnamon Twists

Round out your vegan feast with Taco Bell’s accidentally vegan cinnamon twists! Find them on the dollar menu, and then just get two to save yourself the embarrassment of going back in the drive thru line. I see you. ????

They say going vegan is a lifestyle change, but I say, it’s just memorizing “Fresco style plus guac and potatoes, please.” ✌️

Nonprofit United We Dream Is Crowdsourcing Immigrant Recipes For A Fundraising Cookbook

unitedwedream / Instagram

During the COVID-19 lockdowns, people have spent a lot of time in their kitchens cooking food to bring them comfort. One unique thing about the self-isolation is that people are having to figure out how to make things stretch or substitute some of your usual ingredients. United We Dream wants to make sure they can do something good with all of the recipes we have created.

United We Dream wants to use your recipes to create some good.

According to an Instagram post, United We Dream is putting together an undocumented cookbook. In the spirit of sharing recipes and cultural moments, United We Dream is asking for people to submit their recipes.

“At United We Dream we believe in the power of art and culture to change hearts and minds and June is the perfect time to tap into our cultural creativity,” reads the United We Dream website. “On Immigrant Heritage Month, we want to celebrate our community through a joyous art form that every household does: cooking!”

The money is going to be used to help the undocumented and immigrant communities.

According to Remezcla, 100 percent of profits from the book will go to the organization’s National UndocuFunds. United We Dream launched the National UndocuFund to deliver financial assistance to undocumented people struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is likely that the fund will need to do some extra lifting to help communities recovering from recent looting and rioting that has rocked the U.S. in recent days.

“We know that nothing brings people together quite like food,” reads the United We Dream website. “The dishes that immigrants create, no matter how simple or complex, allow people to experience cultures other than one’s own and all the joys and pleasures that come with it.”

The cookbook is already getting people excited.

There is something to be said about people getting creative in the kitchen during this pandemic. Outings are limited because we are all staying home to slow the spread. There are also people who are still not at work. That is why we have had to get creative to make our food last.

“Today, times are tough because of COVID-19, but many working-class and poor households are embracing their creativity to create meals that both sustain their households and bring a moment of peace and comfort,” reads the United We Dream website. “We want to create a cookbook that reflects our diverse community and inspires memories of joy, comfort and togetherness!”

United We Dream understands the power of food.

Food is a unifier. Everyone eats and food is one way to connect with your culture. It is also a wonderful way to share your culture with other people. Sharing your food and culture with people is a special way to let your friends into your life.

The organization is still taking recipe suggestions. If you want a chance to give more people a look into who you are and your culture through food, click here to share a recipe.

Prisoner Starts His Own Cooking Show On TikTok And, Like, How

@blockboyjmomey / TikTok

Another day, another prisoner blowing up on TikTok. Jeron Combs, 31, is the latest TikTok prisoner sensation with his cooking show. You read that right. The man is creating foods in his prison cell and broadcasting it to the rest of the world via TikTok.

Jeron Combs, aka @blockboyjmomey on TikTok, is a cooking sensations.

One of his most popular videos is the burrito that he was able to put together in his prison cell. The 31-year-old, who is in prison for first-degree murder and attempted murder, took his 1.3 million TikTok followers through a step-by-step guide to create the burritos.

We can’t be sure but it does seems like he cooks for all of those around him.

Credit: @blockboyjmomey / TikTok

We don’t know how many burritos he made but it is clear he is cooking for more than just he and his cellmate. Unless he and his cellmate are hungry enough to eat all of those burritos.

He has managed to use his metal bed frame to double as a griddle to cook the food.

Credit: @blockboyjmomey / TikTok

His bed frame is literally used to heat up his food and to make those burritos hot and fresh. Not going to lie, they look pretty delicious.

He even shows how he is able to heat up his bed frame to create the griddle: a hot plate.

Credit: @blockboyjmomey / TikTok

Genius, tbh. However, how was he able to get everything that he needed in order to create his griddle bed? Also, how did he set up a TikTok account and manage to post regularly? His burrito video has more than 4 million views alone.

For some, this is what the Internet is for.

Social media has a way of always outdoing itself with wild content. Like, this is not the first nor will it be the last prisoner to use TikTok or any other social media platform to flex. Who can forget the prisoner who posted to Instagram about the Popeye’s chicken sandwich?

For others, this is some wholesome content.

Sure, the video itself is pretty fine. However, do not forget that the man is in prison for murder. So, while the prison burrito might be a fun gimmick, it is still odd to celebrate.

A whole other group of people is just made their boy got exposed.

What do you think about the prison burrito video?
