A few things fuel my obsession with Chipotle. 1) It tastes delicious. 2) It’s quick, cheap, and you get real meat and vegetables. 3) The company actually cares about where its food comes from. And 4) It tastes freaking delicious.
We’ve discussed how to make your Chipotle experience as healthy as possible, and now the company has given me another reason to swoon: brown rice. The company so rarely changes up its menu that the first time I saw the brown rice option, I honestly thought black beans had gotten spilled into the regular rice. It wasn’t until a return trip that I did a double take and realized it was actually brown rice.
We all know that brown rice is packed with more nutrients and fiber than its white rice counterpart, making it the more filling and healthier option. But the good news is that it really tastes great in your Chipotle meal. While the white rice is pretty much impossible to beat, the brown rice has more of a bite to it and a slightly nuttier flavor. It seriously won’t disappoint. If you’re opposed to switching up your tried-and-true Chipotle formula, the brown rice is a simple switch that you probably won’t even notice.
Are you Chipotle-obsessed too? Have you tried the new Chipotle brown-rice option? —Erin
