Calories in Taco Bell Salad Per Serving

Dieter beware where fast food is involved at meal time because even salads can pose significant threats in the areas of fatty acids and caloric content.

The Taco Bell Salad is available in four different recipes:

Express With Chips: 580 calories, 29 fat grams, 9 saturated fat grams, 1 Trans fat, 60 milligrams of cholesterol, 1270 milligrams of sodium, 59 carbohydrate grams, 8 grams of dietary fiber, and 23 grams of protein.

As unhealthy as the above item is in fatty acids, it's actually the best of the four choices.

Taco Salads Too High in Calories for Your Diet Plan

Let's look at the remaining three offerings on the menu:

Beef Fiesta Taco Salad: 780 calories, 42 fat grams.

Chicken Fiesta Taco Salad: 720 kcals, 35 fat grams.

Better choices include the Fiesta Bean Burrito for 350 kcals or a couple of Fiesta Crunchy Tacos for 140 kcals each.

One Original Taco at Taco Bell contains 210 calories.
