Vegan Options at Chipotle

Yesterday I decided to get out and about and do some shopping since my leg is feeling a little better. This turned out not to be the best idea I'd had all day, but I did at least get some yummy vegan eats at Chipotle. On their site, they say to vegans, "You should avoid our pinto beans (they are cooked with a small amount of bacon), meats (obviously), cheese, sour cream, and chipotle-honey vinaigrette."



Everything else is game. The fajita veggies are yum and not cooked with the meat. I sometimes get tacos here, but this time I went with a burrito bowl because we got chips to scoop it all up with. It contains the following:


  • cilantro-lime rice
  • vegetarian black beans
  • fajita vegetables
  • fresh tomato salsa
  • roasted chili-corn salsa
  • tomatillo-red chili salsa
  • guacamole



Since we have these all over the place in Texas, it's good to know that when I'm out and starving, I don't have to get all cranky and disgruntled because home is so far away. I can just pull in here and eat some good stuff.

At mine, the vegetarian option is $5.95. You can add guacamole for $1.75 (ouch) more. You will get a good serving of guacamole, though. For just a little more, however, you can get chips and guacamole instead of adding it to your bowl. I like to do it this way so I can just use the guac myself and then share chips with the other folks at the table. UPDATE: Thanks to Sarah (below) for letting me know that the guacamole is supposed to be included in the price of the vegetarian bowl / burrito, etc. so you DO NOT need to buy it on the side. My local shop has since been educated on the matter.

  1. I'm really sad we don't have Chipotle here. We have another similar chain, but it's not as good and it's more expensive. (Figures, right?)

  6. Strange, the vegetarian burrito/burrito bowl option here comes with guacamole. That's what I love about it so much especially, cheaper than the meat option AND it's the only one that comes with their heavenly guac! They shouldn't be charging you extra for that.
