Chipotle’s keto game just got better!
If you’re missing rice every time you dig into a delicious burrito bowl, you have got to try Chipotle’s new Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice that recently hit the menu! It’s keto, absolutely delicious, and totally changing the game for quick-service restaurants’ plant-based movement across the country!
Speaking of Chipotle, we have a whole dining guide dedicated to how to eat keto at Chipotle. You can also easily find all of our keto dining guides on our Hip2Keto app!
If there’s one thing Chipotle was focused on during the making of this keto-friendly menu addition, it’s bringing quality ingredients to their menu so everyone can enjoy it.
So, rather than partnering with other brands like Burger King did with Impossible Foods or Dunkin’ did with Beyond Meat, Chipotle has created its very own less-processed menu addition – Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice! 🙌
CEO, Brian Niccol, told Bloomberg back in a 2020 interview that Chipotle was experimenting with developing more of its own plant-based alternatives in-house, using ingredients like black beans and cauliflower. The chain also already offers its own tofu-based option called sofritas.
“We are definitely experimenting with plant-based foods. What we want to do is make the world’s greatest cauliflower rice, as opposed to process something and make it seem like it’s something else.”
And that’s just what they did.
We’re pretty sure Chipotle nailed their new Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice. It’s made with just 4 real ingredients (freshly grilled, riced cauliflower, hand-chopped cilantro, lime, & salt) and only has 4g of net carbs per serving.
Plus, for a limited time, when you order this delicious new menu item, you’ll pay just $1 for delivery! Just note, when you add this item as a side or to your burrito bowl, it’ll be a $2 upcharge.
