Taco Bell Beefy Fritos Burrito

The Taco Bell Beefy Fritos Burrito will run you just a buck, making it an extremely tempting option.

However, it's arguably the worst thing on the chain's dollar menu.

The item packs 1,000mg of sodium along with 18 grams of fat.

That's nearly as much sodium as you'd find in 90 Lay's Classic Potato Chips.

Order two of these bad boys, and you're staring at over 2,000mg of sodium.

Recent research has also found that high-salt items cause people to overeat and lose sense of their natural portion control.
