Most people go to Taco Bell for Doritos Locos Tacos, waffle tacos, and burritos wrapped in quesadillas. But apparently T-Bell is looking to attract a whole new class of people who find $2 Crunchwraps gross and pedestrian. The chain is gearing up to launch a new "Power Platform" that offers healthier, higher-end alternatives to the regular menu... basically, the people who aren't walking gorditos.
First up is the Cantina Power Menu, a series of bowls and burritos boasting more than 20g of protein and fewer than 500cal apiece. Premium ingredient options include fire-grilled all-white meat chicken, grilled-USDA select steak, romaine lettuce, fresh pico de gallo, real cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, and guacamole made with real Haas avocados (as opposed to the plastic avocados stirred in your yeoman's guac). It's set to go national on July 17.
