The real deal on Chipotle nutrition

I am excited to say that, after four years for waiting, many emails and an online petition, construction is officially underway on our first ever Chipotle restaurant in Pueblo. I was surfing the web for Chipotle-related info and found htis cool nurtional calculator application. since Chipotle’s not exactly forthcoming about the calorie, fat and sodium content of your favorite burrito.

Hey, if you want to pig out in ignorance, go for it. It is, after all, the most awesome food on the planet, even if it was made out of dead puppies and razor blades. As for me, I’m putting my favorite combo out there for the world to see, sneer at and judge.  You’re not gonna stop me from eating there anyway, so why not?

But a couple of little duh-worthy pointers:
*The tortillas are insanely high in calories – hovering around 350 calories each
*Sour cream and cheese are, have been, and always will be fattening.

With that in mind, test your mettle and see what kind of damage I’m doing with my favorite ‘rito, and then, if you dare, click on the link below to figure out your own, then report back to see how you compare.
