Hi...this summer I had a Nachos Supreme and it caused me to have hives on the corners of my mouth. This also happens when I eat regular Tacos and some of their burritos. The only thing I can eat there without discomfort is their Bean Burrito with Green Sauce substituted for the red sauce. Anyone else experienced something like this???

I'm surprised u can eat bean burritoes, I've been told that a peanut is from a bean family, I cannot eat lots of different kinds of bean. I don't eat at Taco Bell.

We avoid Taco Bell like the plague! Beans ARE in the same family as peanuts, perhaps you are becoming allergic to beans as well? (My son can't eat most legumes). Good luck, and keep us posted.

My son is allergic to the whole legume family (peanuts are the only item that cause the fatal reaction). The rule for him is "no beans, no nuts". We do eat at Taco Bell occasionally, but I get things without beans and always check the item ordered before I give it to my son.

I love Taco Bell! I always have a Bean and Cheese Burrito, or a Double Decker or a Taco, and when I was little, I always got the little cup of beans and cheese. Maybe I'm not allergic to beans. I hope not!

Our highly PA allergic daughters can eat the Mexican pizza and Nacho Supreme without any problems. They aren't allergic to anything else, just peanut products.

We eat at Taco Bell at times and our PA
5 year old son usually gets a chicken
burrito. He has never had any beans there,
but he eats beans a lot at home. He loves
baked beans, kidney beans, lima beans.....
you name it. He has never had a reaction
to beans. In fact, he often is called Bean
Boy (o.k....to explain that, his name is
Sawyer and friends began calling him Soy-
Bean because he drinks soy milk and then
came the Bean Boy thing because of liking
beans). Hmmmm......go figure. Our allergist
never mentioned staying away from beans.
I know peanuts are a legume but that doesn't
mean a person will be allergic to all beans.
It must not because our son eats them like
crazy. He sees his allergist in Oct. I'll
ask him about this.

As there is 50% cross-reactivity rate from peanuts to other legumes, our allerg. doc. tested our p.a. child to legumes. She tested negative. She has eaten at Taco Bell many times (beef nachos supreme, beef supreme gordita, bean burrito, reg. tacos). We also buy the Taco Bell seasoning sold in grocery stores. I always worry about employee contamination no matter where we eat, however. I would urge all p.a. people to discuss being tested for legumes with their allergy doc.

Don't know what I can legally post so I'm just going to say if you get a chance check out [url="http://www.cnn.com"]www.cnn.com[/url] under food. There's an article about Taco Bell NOT PEANUT RELATED, rather corn allergy related. Still, doesn't seem that Taco Bell is the most conscientious company.

My P.A. son is allergic to peas also. He is not allergic to pinto beans or navy beans. I am not sure about any other beans because he has not tasted any others.
