WHAT IS TACO BELL'S SEASONED BEEF MADE OF?

What is Taco Bell's Seasoned Beef Made Of?

We use 100 percent USDA premium beef in our seasoned beef. We prepare it much the same way you prepare taco meat at home: after simmering, it is drained of excess fat and pre-seasoned with our signature blend of 7 authentic seasonings and spices. It is then packaged with added water to lock in the flavor and for added moisture, and then shipped to our restaurants. Each of our restaurants prepares our beef following the same steps - ensuring that you’re getting the same great tasting seasoned beef, no matter which of our restaurants you visit.


Sustainable Beef

You already know that our seasoned beef and steak are fan favorites, whether it’s our Beefy 5-layer Burrito, Beefy Fritos Burrito or Beefy Nacho Griller. For us, it’s not enough to offer affordable, craveable choices – it has to be food you feel good about. We’re committed to bringing you beef in a responsible way, which is why we’ve joined the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (USRSB). What does that mean? It means we’re part of a network of beef experts from the supply chain, academia and research, environmental and animal welfare organizations and veterinarians who strive to ensure U.S.-grown beef we source meets our purpose and truly feeds people’s lives with más.


Where does your chicken come from?

All of our chicken is USDA inspected and supplied by domestic farms that operate according to industry standard animal welfare guidelines. We source our chicken from farms similar to what you would purchase at your local grocery store, like Tyson Foods.
