Chipotle is a chain of fast-casual restaurants that offer various kinds of Mexican food like bowls, quesadillas, tacos, burritos, and more. They are also known for revolutionizing the concept of the fast-food chain while upholding their commitment to fresh, high quality food at a reasonable price. Chipotle Mexican Grill has a reputation for being consistently safe for different diets so naturally they also offer gluten-free food for people with gluten sensitivity.
We’ve analyzed the allergen menu and ingredient list and found there are Up to 21 Gluten Free Options at Chipotle, depending on your level of gluten sensitivity. Most of their menu is inherently gluten-free, with the exception of their flour tortillas. Another bonus is that their staff will always change gloves at your request to prevent cross-contamination.
Chipotle has many protein options for you to try that do not have any gluten or wheat: Steak, Barbacoa, Carne Asada, chicken, chorizo, and carnitas are all gluten free. Just make sure you order these without burrito shell or taco shell and tell them that you have a gluten allergy. We recommend ordering your meal on corn tortillas which are 100% gluten free.
Gluten-free diners can also order any of the salads or burrito bowls as they do not contain tortillas and their rice and vegetables do not contain any gluten or wheat. These can also be prepared on Romaine lettuce or Supergreens Lettuce Blend which should be free from cross contamination in most cases. Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice, and Cilantro Brown/White Rice.
We also recommend trying their gluten-free Tortilla Chips and pairing them with Queso Blanco Sauce for a tasty appetizer!
