I know the Chipotle Chicken burrito is so high in calories. It is huge! Last summer my son and his family took me to Chipotle's. I ordered the Chicken burrito because I thought it was a wiser choice than some on the menu! I nearly fell over when I realized what it was calorie-wise! I won't be visiting Chipotle's more than one time a year. Can't afford to make that mistake twice! Nadine

Surprised? While the isn't exactly a diet food, with 530 calories and 30 grams of fat, it is much lower in calories AND fat than a Chipotle burrito. The burrito described above commands a whopping 939 calories and 56% of your daily value of fat! Add sour cream (110 calories), beans (130 calories), and guacamole (170) calories, and you've eaten more calories (1,349) than a lot of people eat in an entire day. Next time, make your burrito healthier by swapping the meat for beans, putting it in a bowl (instead of a tortilla), and loading up on flavorful salsa instead of cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. You'll save about 500 calories.
