Updated 2017! Chipotle Mexican Grill has over 2000 locations in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, and France. They specialize in San Francisco-style burritos, and have numerous options for dairy-free diners and other special diet needs. The menus and allergen charts across the different countries appear to be close to identical. So the list below might be relevant for Chipotle worldwide. Nonetheless, I’ve included links to the allergen charts we could find lower in this post, so that you can double verify.
No Dairy (Milk-Based) Ingredients (see disclaimer below)
- Tortilla Products – Soft Flour Tortillas (Burrito & Taco), Crispy Corn Tortilla (Taco), Tortilla Chips
- Meat and Tofu – Barbacoa, Chicken, Carnitas, Steak, Sofritas (vegan tofu with sofrito herbs & spices)
- Other Toppings – Black Beans, Pinto Beans, Cilantro-Lime Rice (White & Brown), Fajita Vegetables, Romaine Lettuce
- Sauces – All Salsas (Roasted Chili-Corn, Tomatillo-Green Chili, Tomatillo-Red Chili, Fresh Tomato), Chipotle Honey Vinaigrette, Guacamole
Other Allergen Notes: At last check, Queso (sauce), Cheese, and Sour Cream were the only dairy-containing items. According to Chipotle’s website, they do not use eggs (except at locations where breakfast is available), mustard, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, shellfish, or fish as ingredients in their food. Gluten-free diners (or those who don’t want a burrito) can order any of the burritos as a bowl (no tortilla, layered in a bowl), salad (no tortilla, layered in a bowl over greens), or as crispy tacos. At last check, their flour tortillas were the only menu items that contain gluten. And it looks like the vegan Sofritos is the only menu item that contains soy.
