Today, Chipotle continues to offer a concentrated menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in an interactive style so that people get exactly what they want. Chipotle is looking for exceptional ingredients that are not only fresh but also responsible, with respect for the animals, the land and the people who produce them. Chipotle prepares its food with genuine, wholesome ingredients and without the use of any additional colors, flavors or other additives that are typically found in fast food.
