Burritos have a lot of calories. That’s not exactly “news at eleven,” but even the most calorie-conscious among us would be surprised by how quickly the numbers add up between the flour-tortilla folds. Sure, we could cut out the shredded cheese and even the tortilla itself and save a few calories, but that’d be ignoring one important fact–life is short. Too short, in my opinion, to waste it worrying about the occasional foil-wrapped indulgence. (Unless “occasional” means multiple times a week, in which case you probably don’t give a flying fiesta bowl about calorie counts.) When it comes to burritos, I say go big or go home. And at these Mexican fast-food chains, it’s hard to do otherwise.
