For Here Or To Go: Vegetarian Hacks

Going vegetarian is easy with these two meatless menu hacks

Think you can dream up the ultimate taco or burrito? With Taco Bell’s completely customizable menu, the options are (almost) endless. And we’ve got a few ideas to get you started.

We’re back with a new season of our YouTube series For Here or To Go and it’s all about our favorite menu hacks. We start with a classic Taco Bell menu item and show you how to take it to the next level both “for here” in our restaurant and “to go” at home. In honor of National Vegetarian Month, today’s hacks skip the meat but up the flavor.
