When you know what you’re doing, you are able to eat low carb anywhere. Chipotle is no different. Walk in with confidence as we are going to arm you with some Chipotle keto options.
So if you’re new to keto let’s go over some of the things that will become obvious to you at some point. You need to steer clear of rice, beans, taco shells, tortilla chips and tortillas. They have far too many carbs.
Well, that knocks out about everything, doesn’t it? No! You have plenty of low carb options. Let’s take a look.
Chipotle keto options:
Double Chicken Salad
So you’re going to get a bed of lettuce with double chicken, guacamole, tomatillo red salsa and sour cream. This is a salad that packs a punch. Also it’s a lot of bang for your buck with 7 net carbs. You’re going to be paying extra for the guac and chicken, but it’s worth it.
730 calories, 7 net carbs, 68 grams of protein
Double Steak Salad
Alright, this one we’re going to about the same items. Romaine lettuce, guac, tomatillo red salsa, shredded cheese and double steak. This is a very filling steak salad.
657 calories, 6 net carbs and 50 grams of protein
So now you basically have the routine down. You’re going to get a salad with double meat and use the ingredients we listed. You can also go barbacoa, carnitas or sofritas (vegan) as your protein choices. Use the Chipotle Nutrition Calculator to do some research.
There’s one more item on the menu that is a hidden gem. The queso! They make it wtih real aged cheddar. It’s about 3.5 g of net carbs, so you can make it a hearty topping for a salad. Or you can just eat it with a spoon.
Other things to avoid are the vinaigrette dressing and corn salsa with 11 net carbs and 12 net carbs, respectively. That just does not fit into a low carb diet.
As of January 2019, Chipotle added “Lifestyle Bowls” with one of them being keto-friendly! You can find more information on the Keto Salad Bowl here.
Well, now you’re ready to roll. You can get a good keto meal at Chipotle for around $10. Plus it’s a great place to go have lunch. They take good care of hteir customers, they have fresh ingredients and you get a decent value.
