Chipotle, chipotle

My eldest son, a college student, is addicted to Chipotle. Not chipotle, the smoke dried jalapeno flavor (I’m the one addicted to that), but the quick-serve burrito chain of restaurants. For those who have not been to one, it is a quick and somewhat inexpensive way to have a huge burrito just the way you’d make it at home. Pick your fillings and it is made for you. Some interesting facts about the restaurant chain:

  • Steven Ells, Chipotle’s founder, started the first restaurant as a way to fund his dream of opening a fine-dining restaurant.
  • You get about 70% more food if you order a burrito bowl with a tortilla on the side.
  • McDonald’s was an investor in the company, before divesting in 2006.
  • It takes around 60 avocados to make one batch of fresh Chipotle guacamole.
  • Want to order a burrito bowl on the go? There’s an app for that.
