100% Ground Beef (no filler)
Lettuce/Cheese & Salsa
Tortilla Shells (Hard & Soft)
Vegetarian Taco Available
Brown Rice & Zesty Beans
Salad Bar Veggie Sides
The beef used in these is reportedly not USDA commodity beef and doe snot contain filler - like soy protein. However, beef with 'pink slime' is still considered 100% beef interestingly enough. If you are concerned and have heard about the "pink slime" controversy, look back to this post. We do season it in-house with salt, chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne and black pepper.
The rice and beans version is a good choice - brown rice, canned black beans. Salsa is organic.
