Keto Taco Bell Guide

March 19, 2019 by Dominic

If you’re following Keto, Taco Bell is probably the last place that you’d ever think to find a meal option. With a few simple modifications however, there are plenty of items to choose from that won’t ruin your progress!

Overview & Tips

  • Avoid the obvious carb-heavy items like rice, tortillas and desserts.
  • If you’re sold on a certain menu item, try ordering it without the tortilla. Instead, you’ll receive all of your food in a plastic container.
  • Some locations will let you create your own meal by ordering each component on the side.
  • Looking to add more protein? You can add extra meat to any item for a small up-charge.
  • Ordering with the Taco Bell app makes customizing orders a lot easier!
  • Don’t have a Taco Bell near you? There are plenty of other fast food joints in my Keto Eating Out Guides.

Breakfast

Most of the breakfast options contain a tortilla and/or hashbrowns, so we’re a little limited with what we can choose from.

  • Breakfast soft taco, no tortilla
    (150 calories, 12g fat, 1g carbs, 9g protein)
  • Grilled breakfast burrito, no tortilla
    (150 calories, 12g fat, 3g carbs, 8g protein)
  • Mini skillet bowl, no potatoes
    (90 calories, 7g fat, 4g carbs, 4g protein)

Burritos

A majority of the burritos contain a tortilla, rice and beans — essentially lots of carbohydrates. Choose from these options instead:

  • Shredded Chicken Burrito, no tortilla or rice
    (160 calories, 14g fat, 2g carbs, 8g protein)
  • Fresco Burrito Supreme (chicken), no tortilla or beans
    (70 calories, 1.5g fat, 5g carbs, 1g fiber, 9g protein) 4g net carbs
  • Fresco Burrito Supreme (steak), no tortilla or beans
    (70 calories, 2g fat, 6g carbs, 1g fiber, 8g protein) 5g net carbs
  • Burrito Supreme, no tortilla or beans
    (140 calories, 8g fat, 9g carbs, 3g fiber, 7g protein) 6g net carbs
  • XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito, no rice + no beans + no tortilla
    (380 calories, 28g fat, 13g carbs, 6g fiber, 18g protein) 7g net carbs
