Your Favorite Bowl, At Home!
Eating out while keto is not always easy. Many restaurants will cater to us low carb folks but fast food is not as accommodating. Sure, you can remove buns from burgers and omit fries entirely, but you may end up with a lot less food and find yourself either paying double or still hungry! Can’t we low-carb eaters catch a break?! Luckily, we have Chipotle.
Chipotle is many people’s keto-friendly fallback and one of the only fast food places where you can get a truly low-carb, filling meal without waiting forever. It’s easy to skip the rice and beans and opt for the good stuff – yummy marinated meats, cheese & avocado. Sort of the low carb trifecta, don’t you think? Since you get to choose what goes into your bowl, you are in charge of your carbs!
However, Chipotle is kind of on the more expensive end of the fast food spectrum, making it a healthy treat that sometimes comes with a guilty conscience. You want that low carb goodness that goes into those bowls but you may not want to spend all that money to get the easy low carb meal. What’s a hungry keto-er to do? Make their own, of course.

Hi, I noticed that the serving size is “2 people” yet the recipe states “divide into 4 portions.” Is this receipt for 2 servings, with each serving containing two portions or ??? Thanks!!
Nope, the serving size has always been 4 people 🙂
I made it, seasoned the steak the night before…still didn’t taste that great. i might try a different steak next time. Was not good with the skirt steak. 😛
Skirt steak loves a good marinade! Try something with lots of olive oil and lime juice, that should soften it and give it more flavor.
As a former employee of Chipotle, I would recommend marinating the meat in adobo sauce before grilling. That’s what gives their steak its spicy flavor.
Thank you for the tip! We’ll definitely give it a try our next go with it. 🙂
