Here is our #1 Qdoba low carb option: The Qdoba naked burrito. it comes with chicken, queso, pico, lettuce, cheese, sour cream. It has just six net carbs! Obviously you can change things around and make it steak, carnitas, etc. but make sure you don’t add any rice or anything starchy.

Here are the nutrition facts, per My Fitness Pal:
