News: Taco Bell Tests Power Fresco Menu

Taco Bell is testing a protein-laden version of their better-for-you Fresco menu and calling it the "Fresco Power" menu at a couple locations here in Southern California.

The menu basically a Cantina Bell menu minus a few of the carb-heavy or higher calorie ingredients. Specifically, the cilantro dressing, Latin rice, and beans (except for the bowl) are out.

The key selling points are at least 20 grams of protein and less than 400 calories per menu item. The following menu items are offered:

The Fresco Power Burrito comes with your choice of chicken or steak, plus Romaine lettuce, roasted corn salsa, guacamole, and pico de gallo, wrapped in a flour tortilla.

The Bowl features the same sans the flour tortilla, but with the addition of black beans and sour cream.

The Taco consists of the same ingredients as the burrito, but in a smaller serving and folded inside a flour tortilla.

With no new ingredients added, it wouldn't be too hard to custom order a Fresco Power burrito or bowl at your local Taco Bell restaurant.

    Love it! Taco Bell is my go-to fast food for healthy eats. This just makes it better. I would like whole wheat tortillas though.

    I pretty much do this now. I order the Cantina bowl minus the rice and I'm good to go. I can't do the tortillas anyway because I have Celiac.
