Chipotle Mexican Grill. Only one of the best places to eat on the planet, right? Fresh food, great flavors, and so freakin’ good.

But then the keto diet came around. There are HOW many net carbs in that burrito wrap?! Pretty much enough to knock you out of ketosis for the next month! (Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration… one wrap contains 47 grams of net carbs. But that’s still a lot!)

Fear not, Chipotle fan. There are plenty of tasty foods you can enjoy at Chipotle when you’re on the keto diet, and I’m going to tell you all about them in this post: The Ultimate Keto Chipotle Guide.

Please BOOKMARK this post right now because I am going to update and improve it as much as possible. I want it to be so comprehensive that you wouldn’t think of going anywhere else!

The Best Keto Chipotle Food Choices

The best thing you could possibly order at Chipotle when you’re on the ketogenic diet is the Burrito Bowl.

The good news is burrito bowls are super-customizable. You can truly make your “Keto Burrito Bowl” your very own.

Choose from these keto-friendly ingredients…

  • Burrito Wrap – 47g Net Carbs

  • Black Beans – 15g Net Carbs

  • You forgot about the sofritas and tomatillo-green chili salsa. Sofritas have 6g net carbs and 10g fat. The tomatillo-green chili salsa has 4g net carbs and 0g fat. Another thing to remember is that you can ask them for plain diced tomato, jalapeno, and onion as well so that you can better control your sodium content. The salsas are delicious, however, have a lot of kosher salt and sodium in them. Plus, some people don’t like citrus juice which is in the pico. I used to work at a Chipotle so I learned all the ins and outs of stuff

    • Thank you so much for your insight, Ashleigh! I really appreciate it. It’s great to hear from someone who has worked there.

    • your right..I caught that as well…also, romaine lettuce has carbs as well…a cup shredded is 2 net carbs….

      • Hi Lynn! I think some calculators show different values. The Chipotle calculator shows 0g, but MyFitnessPal shows 1g, so I updated it to the MyFitnessPal values (since a lot of people use their app to track). Thank you!
