A Trick for Getting a Bigger Chipotle Burrito Without Paying More

Dylan Grosz ordered 35 different burritos at his local Chipotle over several days and measured each one back at his office.

Yes, how you order your burrito makes a difference in size. Here’s how to max out your burrito’s size, if that is the desire of your heart.

Each was a different permutation of a burrito with white rice, black beans, chicken, mild salsa, and cheese, and Grosz found that you can eke out some extra ingredients for free just by changing up the way you order.

His findings? Order both rices, both beans, ask to go half-and-half with chicken and another meat, and order everything as a bowl with tortillas on the side. The only extra effort on your part is to roll up the burrito yourself, but the upside is that your burrito can be up to 86 percent bigger!
