There is never a good reason to eat fast food when you live in New York City. I don’t care if you only have 37 seconds for lunch, there are options a-plenty. Even if you resort to the dubious salad bar at your local bodega with mysterious smudges on the sneeze guard, there’s a point of pride in having avoided a six-incher from Subway. Not so in California. Not. So. In my quest to achieve fully integrated vegan status (I can eat anywhere! Really!) I have invented a take on a Taco Bell® regular that is undeniably delicious if you don’t make the rookie mistake of thinking it’s actual Mexican food (don’t judge!). Here’s the recipe:
SV: Hi, I’d like to order two (2!) Double Decker® Tacos.
SV: With no meat.
TB®: You wan’ beans instead?
SV: Yes! Please! And also no cheese.
TB®: No cheese…
SV: And add guacamole?
TB®: *sigh* Next time say it all at once. Guac is 50 cents extra.
SV: Sorry. That’s it, I swear.
The amazing thing about Taco Bell® is that they make your food to order and never mess it up! And the amazinger thing about Double Decker®s is that you get the softness of a tortilla and the crunchiness of a taco and and double the amount of beans. Slather some of their red sauce on top (spicyness to suit your individual set of needs, I like mild cause I don’t enjoy having my nose run while I eat) and enjoy.
