Taco Bell Is Adding A New Vegetarian Menu And They Are Bringing Back The Toasted Cheddar Chalupa

There was recently a huge amount of disappointment expressed on social media over Taco Bell removing many menu items. There were even petitions!

Well, now they have announced an all-new vegetarian menu added, which has made quite a few people happy. According to a statement released by Taco Bell, this will be called the ‘Veggie Cravings Menu”.

Taco Bell has had several vegetarian options over the years. When they announced that they were removing the potato options people were NOT happy!

To try to make some people happy again, Taco Bell said it will be reintroducing the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa with a new option. Starting on November 5th it will be back on the menu and you can choose to make it vegetarian!

Normally you can only choose from chicken, beef, or steak for the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa. The new option to make it vegetarian is Black Beans and this makes me SUPER happy!

Taco Bell

I used to be a vegetarian, but honestly, for my personal health, it was not sustainable. However, the black bean option is something I would totally chow down on because I love them!

The new Toasted Cheddar Chalupa with Black Beans is a certified vegetarian by the American Vegetarian Association. The bad news… it’s only for a limited time.

We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu. While we know fans may be understandably sad to see some of their favorites go, this evolution of our menu truly paves the way for fresh new ideas. The creativity and innovation in our kitchen hasn’t slowed down at all, and we look forward to rolling out new fan favorites.

This Sounds Great!

Two other vegetarian options that are coming to the Veggie Cravings Menu are a Black Bean Chalupa – no toasted cheddar on this one, and a Veggie Nachos Party Pack.

Those nachos look really good! Right now there is not a release date for the launch of the all-new “Veggie Cravings Menu”. We only know that we should see it sometime in 2021.
