Taco Bell customers have a new hack for ordering a beloved discontinued menu item

Taco Bell’s 7-Layer Burrito is currently discontinued, but that hasn’t stopped TikTok.

For years, Taco Bell’s menu has been a subject of controversy for fast food fans. In the past, customers have staged protests and even launched petitions against discontinued dishes. Meanwhile, the internet has reacted with complete joy whenever a fan-favorite — like the Beefy Potato-rito — makes a return.

The 7-Layer Burrito is no different. The item, beloved by vegetarians, disappeared from Taco Bell’s menu in 2020. Now, thanks to a new TikTok hack, it’s sort of making a return.

That’s thanks to a TikTok user named Maria (@damntastyvegan). In a now-viral video, Maria shared how to custom-order a 7-Layer Burrito — and save some money in the process.

“Here’s how to order a 7-Layer Burrito from Taco Bell,” Maria says in her clip. “Even though it’s not on the menu anymore. And it’s half the price.”

Maria’s custom order involves requesting each part of the 7-Layer Burrito on its own. She starts by asking for a cheesy bean and rice burrito. She then asks to have it “Fresco Style,” which makes the order vegan by removing any mayonnaise or cheese-based sauces.

Next, she asks to add potatoes, lettuce and guacamole. When it’s all said and done, her total order costs just $2.35.

TikTok users praised the fast-food hack, with some calling it “genius.”

“This is the only thing I ever order,” one user agreed.

“Yes, thank you!” another wrote.

“As a past Taco Bell employee, this is 100 percent right,” another added.

“Omg, so smart,” another praised.
