Taco Bell is reinventing the Naked Chicken Chalupa for plant-based eaters with the Naked Chalupa with a Crispy Plant-Based Shell that's certified vegan by the American Vegetarian Association. This new innovation straight out of the Taco Bell Test Kitchen uses a pea protein-based proprietary blend that's breaded and shaped into a shell and crisped to order.
This limited-time menu offering is filled with lettuce, cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and avocado ranch sauce, and it's a treat that can be customized as desired to add or remove ingredients like dairy or eggs for a vegan-friendly option. The craveable plant-based option was created to satisfy consumers' desire for creativity and it delivers a uniquely Taco Bell twist on the classic taco.
Currently, the Naked Chalupa with a Crispy Plant-Based Shell is testing at only one Taco Bell location in California until the end of the month, while supplies last.
