In addition to the return of the potatoes, Taco Bell is also testing out a new plant-based protein with Beyond Meat® for their vegetarian fans.

“The return of our beloved potatoes is just the first step in showing our fans the strong continued commitment to vegetarian we are making this year,” said Liz Matthews, Taco Bell’s Global Chief Food Innovation Officer. “We have long been a leader in the vegetarian space, but this year, we have more meatless options in store that vegetarians, veggie-curious and even meat-eaters will love.”

The potato bites are AVA-certified vegan and customers can easily swap meat for potatoes or beans on any of Taco Bell’s menu items. Fans can order the Spicy Potato Soft Taco for $1** and the Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes for $1.49** when they’re back on the menu in March at participating U.S. locations.
