Since Chipotle is already a mecca of choices, the concept of yet even more options there might overwhelm you. But stop, take a breath (and make some room in your stomach because you are going to Chipotle after all) and consider ordering off this secret menu. By now, most Chipotle employees have heard of these items and will make them for you without instruction, but allow for extra time on their part and money and appetite on your part.
Reports say that this is a rare item to come across with only some Chipotle locations carrying the crispy, flaky taco bowl. But when you come across it, you should get it. It’s Chipotle’s delicious tortillas fried and shaped into a fun bowl you can stuff with any regular salad toppings.
You’ve probably bought a bag of Chipotle’s delicious, limey, perfectly-seasoned chips before to bring home and make your own nachos. But Chipotle will make them for you! You can add any regular burrito toppings and have a sharable dish.
The Quesarito is not for the dainty diner. Order this and your server will start by making you a quesadilla by stuffing a mountain of cheese between two tortillas and grilling that to perfection. From there, you’ll fill your burrito as usual but the normal wrap will instead be a hot, melty quesadilla.
Have you ever craved a few crunchy chips with your soft burrito but not wanted to commit to the whole bag? Or the price of a whole bag? Most Chipotle locations that offer kids meals offer small bags of chips.
Even though the name sounds like a spin on “Godzilla” this is actually a smaller version of the Quesarito. Yes, you still have tons of melty cheese in a quesadilla which is then opened up and stuffed like a burrito, but to cut some calories, only half the portion size of the regular burrito filling will be added. Finally, the finished product is grilled so it has a delicious crunch. Note that this item only has one tortilla, another calorie cutting element.
As you probably guessed by the previous items, you can get a quesadilla at Chipotle. But you aren’t restricted to a plain cheese quesadilla. Your server will open up your quesadilla and sandwich in any regular burrito toppings.
This is also called the children’s quesadilla because instead of the giant flour tortillas it uses two small corn tortillas. You can, of course, get the small flour taco sized tortillas if you eat gluten.
Don’t let the menu fool you: you don’t have to get your tacos in orders of three. You can order one single taco, or two tacos, and they’ll price them individually.
A lot of diners don’t know this but you’re not stuck with the portion sizes the server gives you. In fact, you can have as much extra of any topping other than meat or guacamole for free. You can ask for the whole tin of bell peppers to be dumped into your burrito at no extra charge.
You can ask for your burrito to be double-wrapped at the beginning of your order but you might be charged a small fee. Or, you can get that second tortilla for free like this: take us up on the aforementioned free extra everything, and your first tortilla will pop under the pressure, forcing the server to offer you a second tortilla for free.
