Taco Bell’s Cantina Chicken Taco comes with a wedge of lime to squeeze all over the all-white meat chicken filling. It’s something new for people looking for healthy fast food.
One of my biggest complains about the soft tacos at Taco Bell was the fact they used to only serve flour tortillas which are not allowed on a gluten-free diet. However, I was interested to try the soft corn tortilla Cantina chicken tacos as part of the Taco Bell Drive Thru diet.
For my review of the Canitna chicken taco, I compared it to the popular Taco Bell 7 Layer Burrito with 510 calories and 18 grams of fat. Allergens in the 7-Layer Burrito, which can be made at home with Amy’s refried beans, include milk and wheat.
With 170 calories, the Cantina Chicken Taco has fewer calories than the Wendy’s Cobb or the Wendy’s Baja salads, other healthy fast food options. It’s not bad for people on a fast food diet.
The Taco Bell Chicken Cantina comes with two warm corn tortillas. The chicken is topped with onions and cilantro. I loved the taste because it reminded me of my favorite guacamole, but to be honest, I kind of wished it actually did contain fresh avocados! I felt a little cheated.
Here’s what I learned about the Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Taco for my review:
No. 1: One Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Taco has 170 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 350 mg sodium, 1 gram of sugar and 11 grams of protein.
No. 2: The allergens in the Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Taco include soybean.
No. 3: The Cantina corn tortilla tacos also come in a shredded pork and steak version.
No. 4: In terms of calories, the Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Taco is great for people on the Taco Bell Drive Thru Diet because it has only 170 calories compared to the 7 Layer Burrito with its 510 calories. So, even if you had two of the Cantina chicken tacos, it would cost you only 340 calories, which is less than one 7-Layer Burrito.
No. 5: It’s totally not necessary to eat both of the corn tortillas. I’m not sure why they double wrapped the chicken in two corn tortillas. I ate mine with only one and it lowered the carbohydrate and caloric intake. Even so, the taco does make for a healthy fast food choice.
For taste, I give the Taco Bell Cantina Chicken Taco a 3.5 stars out of 5. For nutrition, I give them a 4 out of 5 stars. It’s awesome to see a gluten-free option for soft tacos! And, it’s great they are trying to accommodate different dieters with their Taco Bell Drive-Thru diet! Maybe it’s not such a Taco “H.E. Double Tooth Picks,” as some call it.
