Taco Bell started serving breakfast in 2014; however, the menu was expanded in March 2020 days before the pandemic forced restaurants to close doors, reports CNN. The breakfast menu makes up 6% of the chain’s sales and is now returning to 7,000 locations.

The Toasted Breakfast Burrito lineup includes the Cheesy Toasted Breakfast Burrito, Hash Brown Toasted Breakfast Burrito and Grande Toasted Breakfast Burrito. The giveaway is limited to one per person and must be ordered in person at the counter or drive-thru. The Toasted Breakfast burrito normally sells between $1.29 to $2.89.
