Your Chipotle Questions, Answered

Why isn’t this option on the in-store menu?

Chipotle Lifestyle Bowls are an online exclusive menu offering. You’ll only see the Wholesome Bowl as an ordering option online or in the mobile app; you won’t see it listed on the in-store menu at your favorite Chipotle location. But if you’re on the run with no time to order in the app, we’ve got you covered! Build the very same bowl in-store by asking for the compatible ingredients by name: Supergreens lettuce blend, chicken, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, and guacamole. 

Why is Chipotle offering “extras” at the end of the order that don’t fit the Whole30 program (like chips and salsa, or a soda)?

This function is built into the Chipotle app and website and cannot be changed, since someone may place an order for an entire family or office and not just THEIR bowl. Steer clear of any of those add-ons to keep your bowl compatible.

I thought the fajita veggies were cooked in non-compatible rice bran oil?

Not anymore; now they’re using sunflower oil for the veggies and compatible proteins, and only using sunflower oil on their grills! Chipotle is constantly updating its menu and food prep practices in order to meet the needs of their guests. This change—cooking their fajita veggies and proteins in Whole30-compatible sunflower oil—allows you to order the Wholesome Bowl from Chipotle as a totally compatible on-the-go meal.

How long will the Wholesome Bowl be available?

Whole30 and Chipotle have joined forces to support the Whole30 community with the Wholesome Bowl throughout 2023.

Is tomato salsa the only compatible option at Chipotle? What about the Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette?

The corn salsa is NOT compatible; the other three salsas are. When you order the bowl in the Chipotle app, the tomato salsa is automatically added. But if you’re ordering in store, you can add the salsa of your choice. Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette is not compatible because it’s made with Rice Bran Oil and contains honey. 

Do these changes affect all Chipotle locations? What about Canada and Europe?

The Wholesome Bowl with supergreens lettuce blend, adobo chicken, fajita veggies, fresh tomato salsa, and guacamole is available in Canada, and Whole30’ers can build their own compatible bowl online or in-store. However, these changes are not available in Europe.

Is the carnitas still compatible? 

Yes! The Whole30 compatible Wholesome Bowl comes with adobo chicken but you can also build the same bowl with carnitas for a compatible meal.
