Mexican food is my favorite. I love the spice, rice, beans, and burritos. With that being said none of that is keto friendly. So for a long time I stopped eating mexican food until I learned to research deeper on what was actually keto friendly.
Believe it or not Chipotle has quite a few keto options. Before I get to my favorite keto bowls I wanted to share with you the macros for Chipotle food items. Your macros are the core of keto so it is important you know the carb amount in their keto approved items.

Sometimes I double up and get 2 different meats as well as doubling up on the guacamole just depends on how hungry I am. I usually have leftovers however.
