Watch out for those Taco Bueno burritos

My family and I enjoy Tex Mex food–rice, beans, enchiladas, tortillas, pico de Gallo.  There are many fast food restaurants that we enjoy–Rosa’s, Lupe’s, Mexican Inn and Taco Bueno.  My husband and son love the bean burritos at Taco Bueno.

Do you know how many calories are in one Bean Burrito from Taco Bueno?  (Stop reading now if you don’t want to know.)

According to Calorie Count at, there are 490 calories in a Taco Bueno bean burrito, which can be deceiving.

Think about it:

  • Beans = protein
  • Protein = low carb
  • Low carb = weight loss


Taco Bueno spices up their bean burritos with lard and beef fat which drive the calories sky high. So, be careful. If you’re wanting to count calories and lose weight, then avoid the fat-laden burritos at the fast food restaurants like Taco Bueno and Taco Bell.

Next time you pull into a fast food, Tex Mex restaurant, remember los calories.

Or don’t.

You’re choice.
