The Top Swap at Taco Bell


"Taco Bell breakfast" is sort of like "ax-murderer babysitter." It's an inherently bad idea, proven by the insane products the Bell brought out in its attempt to start charging you money earlier and earlier. Waffle Taco is all we have to say, really. But the Bell wasn't satisfied with ruining all three meals—the chain tried to invent the Fourth Meal, which is something you eat after a late night of doing whatever works up your appetite. Limit yourself to lunch and dinner, and keep the wee hours sacred.

More substantial than a taco and lower in calories than a burrito, the Gordita is the perfect compromise at Taco Bell, and with just 150 calories each, a steak or chicken Fresco taco makes a solid sidekick. Just don't substitute the Beef Gordita Supreme for the Cheesy Gordita Crunch, or you'll add an extra 190 calories to your meal.
