Chipotle Has Good News For Fans Of Its Cauliflower Rice

Burritos wrapped in massive flour tortillas and packed with steak, rice, and shredded cheese. Salty chips dunked in piping hot queso. Mounds of guacamole piled onto crispy taco shells. While there's no denying Chipotle is delicious, the fast-casual Mexican chain isn't exactly low-carb (or low-calorie) friendly. A serving of tortilla chips, for instance, will set you back 73 grams of carbs, according to Chipotle's nutrition calculator, while the burritos themselves can average at upward of 1,000 calories (via New York

However, not all is lost for those of us trying to cut back on calories and carbs this year. Back in July, Chipotle introduced a new menu item: cilantro-lime cauliflower rice. Similar to its famous cilantro-lime rice, the new offering is made with riced cauliflower instead of white rice, so each serving contains only four grams of net carbs. The cauliflower rice was originally only released in select locations in Denver and Wisconsin, but just in time for your New Year's resolutions, the cauliflower rice will now be available at all North American locations (via CNBC).

It will be available all across North America

On January 4, Chipotle announced it will be rolling out the much-asked-for cilantro-lime cauliflower rice at all of its locations across the United States and Canada. You'll be able to order it in-restaurant, through the Chipotle app, on, and via third-party delivery partners like DoorDash or Uber Eats. The cauliflower rice does cost an additional $2, but from now through January 11, if you order through the Chipotle app or on, you'll get free delivery if your order includes cilantro-lime cauliflower rice. 

If you want to try it for yourself, however, don't wait. While Chipotle hasn't said how long it will keep the cauliflower rice on the menu, it did say that it will be available for "a limited time only." So you might want to order it as soon as you see it pop up at your local restaurant.
