These are the pro tips for ordering Keto at Taco Bell. Joe now proceeds to order some food from the drive-through to give it a taste and let us know what he thinks about it.
The first dish he is going over is the Burrito Supreme Steak Edition. The main thing with this order is that he asked them to exclude the tortillas and the beans. This meal in total is 5 net carbs and you get a decent amount of steak. This order gets a thumbs up as it is just a ton of deliciousness.
Next one is the Burrito Supreme Chicken Edition, which is the Grilled Fire-roasted chicken. Just like the Steak option exclude the tortillas and beans. This one however is only 4 net carbs. Has good amount of chicken and the chicken is nicely charred. This one gets two thumbs up!
The Chicken Quesadilla Melt is the next order being reviewed. It has a nice amount of chicken and a decent amount of cheese. Exclude the tortillas from this one. So basically you are left with Cheese and Chicken. It has a surprisingly smoky flavor and the sauce they put on is really nice. With less than 1 carb per dish he would probably go for two or three of them as a lunch option.
Now we look at the Beefy Frito Burrito. Once again do not order the tortilla, fritos or rice with this one. So you are left with cheese sauce and ground beef. It is only 3 net carbs and tastes awesome.
Next up we are doing the Grilled Steak Taco. Exclude the tortilla and you are left with a bowl of steak taco deliciousness. It is also just 3 net carbs. If you want to get a bit more bang for your buck then this is a good option to go for. A really tasty option.
The Soft Taco Supreme Chicken is order with no tortilla and is 4 net carbs. Joe believes the Steak Taco is better value. It is pretty good though and chicken is tender.
Another Keto at Taco Bell option is the Fresco Chicken Taco, obviously ordered without the tortilla. It is 2 net carbs for the entire bowl with a very decent amount of chicken. Tastes real good too.
There is also a Beef Fresco Taco option that without the tortilla is only 2 net carbs. This one however needs a bit more flavor. Adding the hot sauce to the bowl however really made it better.
Now we look at the Grilled Chicken Power Bowl. This power bowl has a ton of food there and is only 5 net carbs. Really good value as a keto item. Obviously exclude the rice and the beans. After tasting it Joe is a fan. He does however believe it can do with some spicyness.
There are also breakfast options that you can order but make sure exclude potato bites, tortilla, sour cream and cheese sauce from these orders.
And there you have it. Keto at Taco Bell. Enjoy!
