I had one of those tacos not long ago ordered without cheese since I am also sensitive to dairy. I did not have any problems with it. And it was tasty! So nice to be able to go to Taco Bell with my teenagers again!
We have not had anything from taco bell since December. I just read on a gluten-free blog that they invited a celiac just to introduce the new Cantina menu. They have a salad and a taco made from a corn tortilla. The meat is not supposed to have gluten like their other "meat". There were reviews where even sensitive celiacs didn't react. Anyone here try them? This is the closest restaurant to my house and sometimes a taco out would be a life saver.

The Cantina bowl says no wheat or gluten. Am I missing what you are seeing? I do wonder about the gloves and stuff like that. My dd is not sensitive at all and I would never know. It is so hard!
Most of us don't go by the listed ingredients alone at a place like that. We known that the chances of cc are very high. Any place with 2 gluten-free items and 75 non gluten-free items is likely to get some gluten in the food. If most of the food was naturally gluten-free, your chances are better.

We hadn't eaten there for years but during the dress rehearsal for my daughter's dance studio we did try it only because we were starved and it was about the only place open near there. I had the beans and they were oh so yummy! I had forgotten how much I liked them. I wasn't sure about the rice because I can't have chicken. Often Mexican rice has chicken broth in it and since that's not a top 8 allergen, they wouldn't list it.
We have gotten the bowls from Taco Del Mar. I know they are gluten-free but they are kind of bland. So another option would be nice.

I have been sick for three weeks with headaches, fatigue, and lots of other issues. Stomach issues are slowly getting better. I had lunch at 1pm and would of been sick by now. And the bowl was yummy!
Once again, this Taco Bell was recommended by my GI. It is on Long Island, New York if anyone is interested in info. I am even going to write a letter to corporate to thank them.

I feel great today... of course I'm early in my diagnosis so I'm still not sure yet how sensitive I am (or if I just got lucky with no cross-contamination).
Diagnosed with wheat hates me 4/13

A GI Doctor who is recommending them is a GI Doctor I would switch away from.
