Taco Bell Fresco


Recommended Posts

While not a fan of Taco Bell except for when necessary (sustenance of a sort in a hurry), I was in there the other day and noticed that they were offering some of their standard items prepared "fresco". Mangled mixing of the romantic languages aside (although this is common in Tex Mex land), this is a good idea.

What it seems to be is a mixture of diced tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. When added to the iceberg lettuce on top of a cheap taco, it really adds a dash of freshness, texture, and flavor. Makes the thing much more edible.

I was also impressed that they had a sign advertising that they'd be happy to make stuff meatless for people during Lent, even this far post Easter. Good marketing and a nice touch.
