Yes, yes, I know Chipotle and Qdoba have significant differences. However, their menus are strikingly similar and I order the exact same thing no matter which one I’m at, so it seemed silly to do two separate posts for each.
The great thing about these kind of places is the “have-it-your-way” set-up. You stand within view of your food as it is prepared and decide what does and doesn’t make it into your order – which means virtually anything on the menu at Chipotle or Qdoba (except maybe quesadillas) can be veganized with ease.
My go-to order at each establishment is a vegetarian burrito. The options are many and varied, but I go with rice, black beans, pico, lettuce and guacamole. The tortilla itself is vegan at either place, as are the taco shells. That may sound a little sparse, but considering the sheer size of these things, it’s a more than satisfying meal.
Massive burritos are easily the fast/easy/cheap dinner of choice for my husband and I. Always a good option for a casual meal out with a vegan in tow.
