Good News! Got a hankering for some Mexican Food? Baja Fresh’s menu can meet our Vegan needs! Here’s what Joan, Baja Fresh Customer Relations Specialist has told me:

There are no animal products in the preparation of our rice or beans;
however, when we plate the beans on some entrees, they are sprinkled with
Cotija Cheese. The Cotija Cheese can be eliminated upon request. Our
tortilla soup has a chicken base. We do not use any other type of chicken
or beef broth.
The manufacturer ingredient specifications for the Jack Cheese and Cheddar
Cheese used in our restaurants do not contain animal rennet. The Cotija
Cheese used in some of our menu items does contain animal rennet, and can be
eliminated upon request.

Sour Cream
Jack, Cheddar and Cotija Cheese

The above information is based on standard product formulations and is
current as of August 15, 2005. Variations may occur due to differences in
suppliers, ingredient substitutions, recipe revisions, or product assembly
