Dietary Considerations

However, it’s worth noting that Taco Bell may use the same frying oil for items containing meat, and cross-contact can occur. This might not be suitable for all types of vegetarian diets.

While Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes are vegetarian, Taco Bell uses the same frying oil to prepare menu items that may contain meat. Vegetarian and meat ingredients are handled in common, and cross-contact may occur, which might not be acceptable to certain types of vegetarian diets.

Taco Bell, its employees, franchisees, and the American Vegetarian Association do not assume responsibility for such cross-contact.
