Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you’re immune to late night hunger attacks or road trip snack stops. Vegans need their fast food fix just like the rest of us. If that growling stomach is sending you to the next Taco Bell, here’s what you can order from the menu without disregarding your lifestyle.

Note: Taco Bell doesn’t guarantee that cross contact with meat products won’t occur. Additionally, some stores use the same frying oil to prepare vegan and non-vegan items, so depending on your level of commitment, you may want to ask additional questions when you arrive.

1. Crunchwrap

The Crunchwrap is a beloved Taco Bell menu staple. And vegans can enjoy it, too. Just ask for beans instead of beef, and tell them to hold the sour cream and nacho cheese. Most locations won’t have any issues about sneaking you some extra salsa on top in place of the sour cream.

2. Seven-layer burrito

This burrito is loaded with rice, beans, guacamole, lettuce, and tomato. Be sure to leave off the cheese and sour cream and you have one satisfying snack or meal.

3. Double decker taco

Ask for black beans instead of beef and guacamole instead of cheese. Your non-vegan friends might even follow your animal-loving lead on this one.

4. Spice potato soft taco

Yum! Order it fresco-style and add some jalapeños for a flavorful kick.

5. Black beans and rice

At most locations, it’s only $1.49. You can add potatoes for a bit extra and make it a heartier meal.

6. Spicy Tostada

An open-faced Mexican must-have. Ask the employees to hold the cheese and chipotle sauce.

7. Chips and salsa

Ah yes. The old standby works here, too. It’s the most perfect vegan snack.

8. Cinnamon twists

Vegans have a sweet tooth, too! These tasty twists are totally vegan.

9. Sauces, sides, and topping

You have a variety of sauces, sides and toppings that are verified vegan, so if you want your food no where near meat, these items are safe to work with:


  • Black beans
  • Guacamole
  • Pico de gallo
  • Seasoned rice
  • refried beans
