A Vegan’s Guide to Eating Plant-Based at Chipotle

by | May 22, 2019

Chipotle Mexican Grill is a favorite for many. Although I don’t consider it as coming close to real, authentic Mexican cuisine, I sure do love it for what it is! It’s no secret that they are majorly vegetarian-friendly but did you know that they are also super vegan-friendly? Grab the kids and place your Uber Eats order because here is what you can get off Chipotle’s menu that has been certified as vegan-friendly by the company.

On Chipotle’s website they have a very handy pull-down bar titled “What should I eat if I am…” that is followed by a list of options. Some of the options listed include gluten-free, avoiding sugar, counting calories, vegetarian, and of course, vegan. This very simple tool on their website actually makes finding vegan options at their eatery very easy for both the customers and the employees to know what is or isn’t suitable for their diet.

The first thing you’ll want to decide on is if you want a burrito, tacos, a burrito bowl, or a salad. Both the flour and corn tortilla options Chipotle have are vegan as well as their white and brown rice.

The Protein

When it comes to bulking up your Chipotle order, you have a few delicious choices which are black beans, pinto beans, sofritas, and veggies. I always get all 4 in my burrito bowl!

Even if you can’t have the queso, sour cream, or cheese because you’re vegan, don’t worry because there 4 salsas are here to save the day- tomatillo-green chili salsa, tomatillo-red chili salsa rojo, fresh tomato salsa (pico de gallo), and roasted chili-corn salsa.

Don’t forget the lettuce!


Even if you’re grabbing your Chipotle fix, make sure to get some greens in with a hearty handful of romaine lettuce!

Never Forget the Chips


Thank the Chipotle gods because their scrumptious chips are vegan! As I get the burrito bowl almost always, I like grabbing chips to scoop up my vegan deliciousness.

Guacamole- Not Always Not Always Extra

Guacamole is especially for any Chipotle order, no matter how much extra it is. Did you know that if you skip out on the meat and sofritas, guacamole is included for free? The company even posted about it on their socials to confirm! Yay!
