Bueno, No Sano.

I enjoy the occasional chain-store burrito. I consider(ed) them a healthy alternative to traditional fast food. Then I entered my personal burrito preferences into this Chipotle nutrition calculator:

Chipotle Nutrition Facts

Those are the nutrition results for a tortilla with rice, beans, lettuce, salsa, and cheese: no meat, sauteed vegetables, sour cream, guacamole, or chips. Granted, one of these burritos is about the size of a small cat–but still, 26g of fat?!

Where does your burrito weigh in?
