After reviewing menu prices at some of America's most prominent Tex-Mex establishments, Chipotle was found to be cheaper than most of its
burrito- and taco-slinging competitors, but one customer disclosed a technique that can get you the cheapest burrito ever.
Boston TikToker Wyaleena Ahmed released a video showing how she pays just over $3 for the popular item. Given that Chipotle burritos cost $6.50
Chipotle is known for its wonderful, non-GMO food, but sour cream, queso, and guacamole may be expensive. In the past year, Chipotle has
raised food prices by 4% to combat commodity inflation, making each dish 30 to 40 cents more expensive. Ahmed has the answer to saving money in tough times.
The 46-second video, which has over 2.6 million views and 170,000 likes, shows how to purchase this ridiculously cheap burrito through
the chain's mobile app. Ahmed starts with Build Your Taco instead of a burrito. She orders a soft tortilla and one taco instead of three.
Chicken is the cheapest protein, so choose it. What follows is the real kicker. Ahmed orders the remaining dishes as sides instead of taco
toppings at no extra cost. TikToker orders brown rice, black beans, roasted chili corn salsa, fresh tomato salsa, tomatillo-green chili salsa, sour cream
A single chicken taco costs $3.05 at her Chipotle. The 30-cent soft tortilla on the side raised her total to $3.35.
