Yes, I do like the burritos at Chipotle. But how many calories are there in my favorite burrito? I did a quick Google search and found the Chipotle Nutrition Calculator at ChipotleFan.com. Just put check marks in the boxes and watch the Nutrition Facts section add up the calories, fat grams, sodium, and other nutritional information.
I started with my favorite barbacoa burrito in a bol (the bowl itself adds no calories unless, for some odd reason, you like to eat the plastic bowl). With rice, black beans, and green salsa, my burrito has 435 calories, 11 grams of fat and 1140 mg of sodium (see above). Not too bad.
If I get my burrito in a 13 inch tortilla (or get the tortilla on the side), and add cheese and sour cream, the numbers change dramatically with 945 calories, 39 grams of fat and 2020 mg of sodium (see below). Too many calories and too much fat for me to eat at one meal on a regular basis.
And what happens if I get chips and guacamole on the side? I end up with 1665 calories, 79 grams of fat and 2630 mg of sodium – way too much.
You can go to the Chipotle Nutrition Calculator and figure out the nutrition facts for your favorite Chipotle meal.
