Nutrition Information on Tace Bell Guacamole: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s050e.html



Best I can find at the moment... Guacamole is usually vegan, most recipies I've seen are anyway.

also! from vrg.org/fastfoodinfo.htm



"TACO BELL: If requested, Taco Bell will send a list of their menu items that are suitable for vegetarians. Under their lacto-ovo heading, they list the following: Pintos & Cheese, Bean Burrito, Bean Tostada, Mexican Rice, Seven Layer Burrito (no sour cream), Cheese, Gordita Shells, Creamy Jalapeno Sauce, Creamy Lime Sauce, Pepper Jack Sauce, Baja Sauce, Fiesta Salsa, Red Sauce, Hot/Mild/Fire Sauce, Green Sauce, Pizza Sauce, Guacamole, and Taco Shell. Under their vegan heading, they list: Bean Burrito (without cheese), Bean Tostada (without cheese), Mexican Rice (without cheese), Seven Layer Burrito (no sour cream, no cheese), Hot/Mild/Fire Sauce, Fiesta Salsa, Red Sauce, Soft Tortillas, Pizza Sauce, Green Sauce, Guacamole, and Taco Shell. Taco Bell used to have two different distributors for the Mexican Rice. They are no longer using the distributor which had milk derivatives in the rice. NOTE that the sour cream does contain gelatin, which is animal based.



Taco Bell stressed that while the ingredients listed above may be categorized as acceptable for certain types of vegetarian diets, all ingredients are handled by employees in common with other ingredients which may not be acceptable to certain types of vegetarian diets."

Last I "knew" (heard), they use their sour cream in their guac. So it's not even vegetarian. THey may have changed it since.

I haven't heard that. Do you have a source?



I just e-mailed them about it. I'll post once I've heard back.

The main problem with their guacamole is that it does not taste like guacamole. I would be interested in finding out if it actually has avocados in it.

I posted in another thread about this... I contacted Taco Bell... Their guacamole is "vegetarian" (I'm not sure what their definition of vegetarian is) but their sour cream contains gelatin.

I can guarantee that the guacamole at Taco Bell is vegan (as well as their beans, red sauce, tortilla chips, tortillas and rice). I am looking at my VegNews magazine for this month and Taco Bell won the Favorite VegFriendly Award for the 2004 Veggie Awards. YUM!!

Things must have changed since you've had it. It tastes great, or at least at the Taco Bells I've gone to. It tastes just like fresh home-made guacamole, and I only make guacamole at home with fresh avacado along with some other minor ingredients. It's surely vegetarian, and in all likelyhood vegan.

I have come across many Guacomles that have dairy in them.  A lot of places put sour cream or or even cheese.  I always ask places because a lot of them mix other stuff in to probably save money.
