Chipotle is very popular with people on the ketogenic diet because it is so easy to customize your order. As a customer, you control every single thing they put on your food.

Plus, they keep improving their food and offering even more low-carb options too. For example, in addition to white rice or brown rice, they offer cauliflower rice now as well! Everything is made fresh, and it’s super-fast.

Even though I always advocate for eating at home and cooking your own food, Chipotle is one of the better choices if you have to eat out.

Tips for ordering keto at Chipotle

It is so easy to eat keto at Chipotle! The fact that you can customize everything puts you in complete control of your meal.

When you know ahead of time how many total grams of carbs are in each of the fresh ingredients, you can make better choices.

Here are some really simple rules to follow to stay on track ordering Chipotle if you are on a keto journey:

Build a burrito bowl

Since any type of bread is not a good idea on keto, always opt to build a burrito bowl.

It will still fill you up, especially when you pile it high with your favorite low-carb veggies.

Pay attention to serving sizes

Even though you fill up a burrito bowl with low-carb real ingredients, the carbs can still add up. This is because serving sizes matter!

For example, sour cream has 5g net carbs, and guacamole has 2g net carbs. That alone – without the salsa and meat – is 7g net carbs.

Mix and match the meat

Fill up your bowl with low-carb protein option that fills you up! Ask for “half chicken breast and half steak.”

It’s the same price as one type of meat. If you are feeling really hungry (and have the macros to spare), then ask for double the meat.

You’ll have yourself a double protein bowl!

Order the Keto Lifestyle Salad Bowl

Chipotle actually has a meal on their menu called the Keto Lifestyle Salad Bowl. It’s on the menu, and it is easy to change and make your own, or just order it as-is.

There are only 6g total net carbs in the entire bowl. Here are the entire nutrition facts: 585 calories, 42 g fat, 31 g protein, 14 g carbs, and 8 g fiber.

You can find all the nutrition information for the bowl here.

This is what you get in the keto salad bowl:

  • Carnitas
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cheese
  • Guacamole
  • Tomatillo Red-Chile Salsa

You can also customize this bowl too.

For example, the you can add extra low carb toppings or swap out the tomatillo salsa and the guacamole for the green salsa.

Commonly asked questions when ordering keto at Chipotle!

The fajita veggies have 4 net carbs per serving.
